100% Virtual – Walk or Run the Race Wherever You Are! It’s free!

In 2021, Children’s National Hospital celebrated its milestone birthday with the Race for Every Child: 150th Birthday Edition. The race was 100% virtual as many kids who participated, including Children’s National patients, were not yet eligible for the vaccine. Childrens’ safety is always a top priority.

A Vintage Affair

A Vintage Affair is our signature fundraising event featuring fine wines paired with delectable cuisine. The evening features silent and live auctions which offer the opportunity to bid on vintage wines, unique vacations and memorable dining experiences.  Proceeds raised through A Vintage Affair fund the Founders Auxiliary Board’s Annual Grants and Major Gift Programs.

A Vintage Affair 2023 is currently being considered to take place in the 1st quarter of 2023.
