The 2014 Georgetown Gala, the annual black tie Citizens Association of Georgetown (CAG) event that brings together over 400 residents, organizations, businesses, and politicos to celebrate Georgetown and CAG’s mission of historic preservation and improving the life of the community, will be held on Friday, October 24.
The event will be held at the stunning Italian Embassy on Whitehaven Street. Ambassador and Mrs. Claudio Bisogniero will be Honorary Chairs. The “Fly Me to the Moon” theme will give the gala a cool Rat Pack/Mad Men vibe in its cocktails, gourmet Italian dinner buffet, fabulous entertainment, unique live auction items, and hip After Party.
The honorees, Jack and Michele Evans are long-time Georgetown residents and activists. Jack Evans, is D.C Council’s longest serving councilmember having representing Ward 2 since 1991. Jack serves as chair of the Committee on Finance and Revenue, which oversees the District’s finances, including tax policy. In addition to earning a reputation as one of DC’s toughest budget and tax stewards, Jack has used this committee to secure approval of many major legislative tax reforms including: reducing tax rates, simplifying DC’s antiquated tax code and establishing incentives for businesses.
Co-Chairs Jennifer Altemus, Colleen Girouard and Robin Jones along with their committee, are putting together the evening’s entertainment to include crooner Danny Meyers and his DC Love band playing dance music during cocktails and dinner, a live auction featuring FOX News Commentator, Griff Jenkins , followed by DJ Trophy Brothers upping the tempo for more
The Gala’s honorary chairs are: Ambassador and Mrs. Claudio Bisogniero, The Honorable Eleanor Holmes Norton, The Honorable Selwa “Lucky” Roosevelt, Senator and Mrs. Joseph Lieberman, and John J. DeGioia, President of Georgetown University.
Back by popular demand, the Gala will extend into the night with an After Party at the Embassy, starting at 10:30 PM. The host committee is busy planning a soiree that riffs on the Gala’s mid- century theme: expect good music, good dancing, a well-stocked open bar, and lots of late night
