About the Event

Enjoy a special evening at the home of the 2019 World Series Champion Washington Nationals! The evening will kick off with an exciting live program in box seats on the Nationals Club terrace, headlined by Today co-host Hoda Kotb alongside Olympians Greg Louganis and Kitty Carruthers Conrad and former Dallas Cowboys player DeMarcus Ware, all sharing how adoption has touched their lives.

Following the program, enjoy VIP and general receptions, with a chance to experience ballpark features like speed pitching, locker room tours, and the Racing Presidents, alongside buffet stations, signature cocktails, and an exclusive Super Silent Auction.

Most importantly, your support will launch NCFA’s work into its next decade, as together we work toward a future in which all children, everywhere, can thrive in permanent, nurturing families.

Coach's Box: SLCG Economic Consulting; Nina Toups; Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld; Greg & Jane Castanias; Kevin & Stacey Reynolds; Wayne & Linda Sharp
