Snatching up one of Washington’s last beautiful, balmy evenings, the Easter Seals Greater Washington and Baltimore Region held a kickoff party to its Advocacy Awards last night atop the beautiful rooftop of Citi, located downtown. The event served as a kickoff to the Advocacy Awards Dinner, to be held Spring 2013.
Special guests included Deborah Mullen and her husband Retired Admiral Mike Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The event was hosted by Dinner Chair, Candi Wolff, Citi’s Executive Vice President and Head of Global Government Affairs and held on Citigroup’s Rooftop Terrace in Northwest Washington.
Guests took in the breathtaking Washington skyline while enjoying cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres.
The Easter Seals Advocacy Awards Dinner honors leaders in philanthropy and public policy who have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to advancing opportunities for people with disabilities and other special needs, including veterans and wounded warriors in the Greater Washington-Baltimore Region. The 2013 Dinner will celebrate the Easter Seals Veterans Employment Program. Since its inception in 2010, the Easter Seals Veterans Employment Program has placed more than 200 veterans in positions with more than 100 companies. Easter Seals has invested close to $300,000 in job training for veterans.
