If you’re in D.C. tomorrow and are game for a night out of great fun for a lifesaving cause, consider the Best Friends Foundation’s 20th Anniversary gala.
Best Friends is Elayne (Mrs. Bill) Bennett’s ministry of hope to schoolkids. With a little love, high expectations, and fun, Best Friends simply changes lives of children who might otherwise fall victim to the soft bigotry of low expectations that remains a fact in many schools and communities of, frankly, all races and income ranges.
The celebration tomorrow night will have the Bennett family’s great taste in music on display (you know a little about this if you listen to Bill’s Morning in America): Entertainment includes the Drifters, Marilyn McCoo & Billy David Jr., and Chuck Brown.
When I say fun, I mean fun.
There are a lot of dinners in D.C. every night. There will be a lot this spring. But there will be none like BFF tomorrow night.
See you there?
The dinner is a fun raiser, but also a (pricey) fundraiser. But Best Friends is offering a special rate for Corner readers: $250 per ticket, with about half of the ticket cost tax deductible.
