WHO: International Furnishings & Design Association (IFDA)
BENEFICIARY: IFDA & Team RWB
DC’s brightest and most talented designers are coming together to kick off the 2013 Veteran’s Day
Weekend by giving back to our nation’s heroes. As a leader in the design industry, IFDA is committed
to supporting the furnishings and manufacturing commerce in the DC Metro area, while consistently
making strides to give back to the community. This year, the organization has selected Team Red
White and Blue (Team RWB) as a beneficiary of this fall’s Masquerade Ball.
This exciting event will raise funds/awareness to the mission and vision of this national non-profit
organization, Team RWB, who strives to make a difference in the lives of our veterans. It is their
mission to enrich the lives of these real-life heroes by connecting them to their community through
physical and social activity. Team RWB is devoted to offering weekly fitness activities, monthly social
events, camps and participation in local races, to keep veterans inspired to commit to their own
health and fitness.
The Masquerade Ball will be the design event of the fall. Hors d’oeurvres, drinks, dancing, champagne
entry, a red carpet, photographers, creative masks, and much more! Prizes for the best mask will be
awarded. The representatives from Team RWB will talk about the amazing work that they do.
The Masquerade Ball will be held at the enchanting Capitale on K Street, between 13th and14th. The
interior of the space was designed by one of the capital’s most talented artists, Maggie O’Neill. Her
inspiration for the whimsical design was “Washington DC meets Alice in Wonderland”.
Ticket sales and donations will be used to raise funds for the appropriate organizations in an effort to
continue giving back.
