Night of Trees

Date: Friday, December 6, 2013

Location: Omni Shoreham Hotel

6:00 p.m. until midnight

This much-anticipated annual fundraiser, kicks off the holiday season with wonderfully decorated trees in the lobby of the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel, an evening of live music performed by Free Spirit, open bars, lavish buffets, and more that 200 extraordinary auction items.

The benefits of sponsorship begin with exposure to the 700+ guests who attend this Washington holiday tradition benefitting the sole provider of sports and fitness training, and competition for people with intellectual disabilities in the District of Columbia. Partnering for this important event puts your name before loyal supporters from the legal, diplomatic, business, political and commercial real estate sectors.

Additional Night of Trees opportunities:

Champagne Reception Sponsor
This delightful prelude to the Gala opens the evening with an hour-long reception, the first opportunity guests have to view the volunteer-decorated trees, in the lobby of the Omni Shoreham Hotel.

Decorate a Tree
Fraternal organizations, schools, families, companies and embassies donate their time, material and talent to create imaginative trees that guests bid on in the silent auction. SODC provides 7.5 foot, pre-lit, artificial trees, set in concrete bases. Decorators gather on Saturday, November 30th  to create the magic and the iconic trees. A light buffet is provided. This can be a great team building exercise for your company, or all out fun for anyone wanting to help our athletes in a very special way.  The trees are up in the lobby until mid-December when they are then delivered to the winning bidders by Cort Furniture.
