Tuesday, May 24th: The National Building Museum Hosts Annual Gala & It’s Can’t-Miss Afterparty

On Tuesday, May 24th the Museum will hold its 30th annual Gala, recognizing CoStar Group, DAVIS Construction, and Casey Trees for their profound contributions to our nation’s building industry, commitment to our local community, and vision and innovation for our future.

The evening will include a special tribute to Colden “Coke” Florance recognizing the profound impact he has had on the development and preservation of Washington, DC and will be hosted by Susan Stamberg, Special Correspondent to NPR.

Festivities of the evening will include a garden party cocktail reception on the West Lawn, seated dinner, and award presentation in our historic Great Hall, and a not-to-be-missed after party with live music and dancing into the night!

This year’s incredible celebration will bring together the full spectrum of those in the building industry as well as cultural, corporate, and political leaders from around the country and raises critical support for the Museum’s acclaimed exhibitions, youth education initiatives, public programs and family festivals. This gala is the Museum’s largest fundraiser of the year and a celebration not only of the Honor Award recipients’ accomplishments, but also of the Museum’s unique educational mission.

Can’t make the gala? At 9pm, join guests for the Afterparty on the West Lawn, and for $50, enjoy live music by Beatles cover band British Mania, open bar, lawn games, dj spinning tunes, and dancing until midnight. Join us and bring your friends for an incredible evening. The theme is fun, the attire is garden party. Dress up and help support a good cause.
