Dream Gala 2008

Gala 2007 gallery

The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation's annual Dream Gala will be held Saturday evening, May 3, 2008, at the spectacular new Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor.

The Dream Gala serves as the primary fundraiser for the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation. Over $454,000 was raised through last year's event and it is anticipated that the 2008 gala will be even more successful. An entertaining evening is assured with music, dancing, fine dining, live and silent auctions and an introduction to the 2008 Washington Nationals.

This is an exciting time to be involved with the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation. As the Nationals move to their new home, Nationals Park in 2008, the Foundation has been working hard to bring our cornerstone programs from drawing board to reality. The first, a partnership with the DC government to build the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy, will teach children the fundamentals of baseball as well as provide after-school educational programs for children in the DC region. The second, a partnership with Children's National Medical Center in DC to create a world-class Pediatric Diabetes Care Facility, will provide a multi-disciplinary approach to address every aspect of a family's many needs when a child is faced with a diagnosis of diabetes. With these initiatives leading the way, our Foundation is also developing partnerships that will improve the lives of those living and working in the community surrounding the new Nationals Park.

All of this work is made possible by the generosity of our friends and fans, and the gala provides a wonderful opportunity for corporate and private sponsors to support the Foundation's mission. Please contact the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation office at (202) 541-1753 for information on corporate or individual sponsorship opportunities and general information about the Dream Gala.
