Citizens Association of Georgetown: Oct. 18, 2017

Many Georgetown streetscapes are notable for their trees and historic buildings. (Brian Kapur/The Current/June 2017)

The big event this week is the 2017 Georgetown Gala, “Streets of Georgetown.” It will take place Saturday, Oct. 21, at The Four Seasons Hotel at 2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, from 7 to 11 p.m. Music will be provided by the “For the Win” band. Many donors have come forward to support our yearlong programs that benefit activities such as public safety, historic preservation, aircraft noise and parking issues, among others.

There is a long list of auction items at the gala that will also contribute to our programs. There are weeklong trips to Costa Rica, Paris and Aspen; fresh flowers for every month of the year; wine and jewelry blind pulls valued at $50 to $300; and a progressive poolside party for 20 people who will enjoy three courses of drink pairings at three different Georgetown homes. Many other items are available as well. This is an evening that you should not miss!
