Each spring, the Trust for the National Mall hosts our Annual Benefit Luncheon to raise funds to restore, improve and preserve America’s most visited national park: the National Mall. As one of Washington, D.C.’s premier events, the luncheon brings together more than 1,000 philanthropists, business leaders, government officials, and diplomats to support the Campaign for the National Mall. Last year alone, the luncheon raised roughly $1.5 million in vital funds to support America’s Front Yard.
This year’s luncheon will take place Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. on the grounds of Constitution Gardens, the 38-acre space located just north of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. Our featured keynote speaker is Sheila C. Johnson, co-founder of the BET network, founder and CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts, and vice chairman and partner of Monumental Sports & Entertainment. This event will serve as the catalyst for generating further awareness and support for the Trust’s upcoming rehabilitation of Constitution Gardens. Attendees will also learn about the project’s innovative designs and focus on environmental sustainability.
