10th Anniversary Gala

10th Anniversary Gala, GW Nursing

The 10th Anniversary Gala is the signature celebration of our year. Join GW President Thomas LeBlanc and Dean Pamela Jeffries for an evening of celebration, camaraderie and entertainment. Alumni, founding and emeriti faculty, friends of GW Nursing, and current faculty, staff, and students are all invited to attend.

As many of you are each aware, we had planned to hold our a gala at the Army Navy Country Club, but as the pandemic raged on, the difficult decision was made to postpone. With this shift to a virtual event, we are no longer restricted to the number of attendees who will be able to attend, as we were at the Army Navy Country Club. As a result, we are allowing members of our community to purchase tickets in February so that all are able to join for a special yet safe celebration of GW Nursing’s 10th anniversary.

This special evening will include:

  • a three-course gourmet dinner and wine pairing delivered to the homes of attendees across the greater DC, Virginia and Maryland region*
  • live entertainment
  • recognition of the inaugural cohort of Distinguished Alumni Award recipients
  • several esteemed speakers
  • a silent auction to support student scholarships 

For our supporters outside of the DMV, we will be sending a non-perishable basket directly to your home address in lieu of the perishable basket for our local attendees.

An important note: if you purchased a single ticket, the gourmet dinner delivered will be for a single person. Should you wish to add another dinner for a significant other or another guest, please purchase an additional ticket and we will ensure you receive dinner and wine for two. 

We will open the ticket portal on February 1 and it will be open until February 19, so please be on the lookout for future communication with additional details. Should you have any questions regarding the plans for this celebration, please contact Matt Hess, Events Manager at [email protected].

Opportunities for event sponsorship are currently available. All proceeds from the gala will support student scholarship funds.
