Imagination Stage - 2016 Annual Gala - La Fete des Amusements et Jeux
I love DC. On December 9th, I represented my sister, Mayor Muriel Bowser, at Imagination Stage's Annual Gala that was led by my good friend Kim Greenfield Alfonso, the Imagination Stage Board President. The venue was fantastic, La Masion Francais or the French Embassy. The large, diverse crowd was quite beautiful in "creative black tie." And one of Washignton's great artists, Septime Webre, received the Imagination Stage Award. It was great fun for a great cause.
The powerhouse chairs for the event were Sonya and Kamal Ali, Erika and A. Scott Bolden, Bethany and George Little, and April and Roger Richmond. Ambassador Connie Morella served as the the Honorary Chair. Through their efforts, generous sponsors and donors, the event was also a financial success.
