The 29th Annual Charity Auction will be held on Thursday, November 1 at the Sphinx Club at the Almas Temple, 1315 K Street, NW, Washington, DC from approximately 6:00 – 10:00 p.m.  Admission is free, and the event is open to the public.

Proceeds from this year’s Charity Auction will benefit two great, local charities—New Endeavors by Women (NEW) and the FCBA Foundation.  Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, NEW partners with homeless women in the DC area to empower them to recognize their own worth.  By providing housing, fostering the development of life skills, and promoting education and employment, NEW transforms women’s lives by working to break the cycle of homelessness.  Nearly 30 years later, NEW’s programs and services are even more vital and urgently-needed, as homeless women and children in the District face the most daunting climb out of homelessness ever seen in recent history.  Funds raised from this year’s Charity Auction will support NEW’s Youth Enrichment Program (YEP!), which provides school help and a summer enrichment program for children.  The FCBA Foundation will use proceeds from the Charity Auction to support its annual scholarship program.

The Auction Committee is looking for “priceless” prizes for the 29th Annual FCBA Charity Auction, including (but not limited to) tickets to exclusive industry events, behind-the-scenes tours, historic memorabilia related to key communications laws or events, and other unique prizes that can’t be obtained anywhere else!  Please consider whether you have any ideas or connections that would be helpful in procuring such items.  “Priceless” prizes are always some of the most popular packages at the event.
