It happens right before Thanksgiving each and every year for the last five years, making it the 5th annual Capital City Ball at The Washington Club in Dupont Circle.

Let’s be real, folks, Washington loves to dress up and parade the finery. This year was no exception. The gala gowns were out in force along with the tuxes. With all the colors of a kaleidoscope the room was a sea of silk and satin, samosas, baked brie, salads and such coupled with both live music by the Bittersweet Band. Galalicious.
Most importantly, as the hosts so aptly put it, “It is unacceptable that human trafficking exists anywhere, but it is especially troubling that it is a significant problem right here in Washington, DC, and we are determined to leverage this event to make a difference well beyond the money we raise.”
This year was another positive effort toward that end.
