Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of entertainment while doing your part to make sure this generation of DC students experience the power of finding their own voices while learning the research and writing skills that will serve them well for a lifetime!

Join us for the second annual Evening to Empower Student Voice Match Challenge Fundraising Extravaganza! Every donation you make (sponsorship, tickets, auction items, and campaign donations) will be matched dollar for dollar—up to $50,000!

Expect:

  • Great music. Both superstar saxophonist Marshall Keys and his band and the wonderfully dynamic Blue Dot Jazz Troupe will perform sets in honor of the occasion. Thank you to both for their commitment to One World and DC!
  • Amazing food. Catering by Root & Stem, renowned for farm-to-table gastronomic delights!
  • Grand company. Plan to meet student writers, skilled teachers, and the wonderful community of people who have helped One World Education grow from an idea in a classroom a dozen years ago to the largest writing program in the district today!

Read what the Washington Post is saying about One World and its students!

Proceeds from this year’s match campaign will underwrite next year’s One World Challenge, a citywide public speaking competition for middle and high schoolers and the One World Inspiration Challenge, a first ever public speaking competition for the city’s adult learners.

This fundraising event will be hosted on the beautiful patio on the top floor of Room & Board, the area’s premier furniture store, in the heart of Washington, DC on October 16, 2019 from 6-8pm.
