Annual Benefit Luncheon
An extraordinary experience on the Mall.
On the first Thursday of May, the Trust for the National Mall hosts an extraordinary annual luncheon on the grounds of the National Mall. With the iconic Washington Monument in the background, guests don hats that rival those at the Kentucky Derby.
Between courses, they get progress reports on the Campaign for the National Mall and hear from keynote speakers, which have included former First Lady Laura Bush, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, and former Volkswagen of America CEO Jonathan Browning. Over the last five years the event has raised mroe than $7 million to restore America's Front Yard.
