Frequently Asked Questions

What is the attire?

Grand Slam Glam reflects that this is a premiere event and guests are encouraged to choose elegant, festive attire that will still allow you to take advantage of all the ballpark has to offer. Most attendees will be in cocktail or formal attire, but we encourage comfortable shoes!

How do I get there?

Nationals Park is centrally located in Washington D.C.’s Navy Yard neighborhood. Free parking is available for all guests in the Nationals Garage C (corner of N Street SE and First Street SE). Nationals Park is just a short walk from the Navy Yard - Ball Park Metrorail Station.



What do I need to know when arriving?

Enter through the Center Field Gate on N Street SE. If parking, take the elevator (not the stairs) to street level and the gate will be right at the exit. Please note that we are subject to Nationals Park’s regulations, so all guests will be screened by their security team, and any non-clear bags larger than a clutch or small purse may be subject to additional screening.

Gates will open at 6pm. We encourage all attendees to arrive as close to that time as possible to pick up a signature drink and ballpark snack from our welcome reception and find your seats behind home plate for a fast-moving and inspiring opening program, which will begin promptly at 6:45pm. VIP and general receptions, a buffet dinner, and ballpark activities will follow the program.

Where can I stay?

Recommended hotel accomodations within walking distance of Nationals Park are The Thompson, The Cambria, and Courtyard by Marriott Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard.

COVID-19 Mitigation

Amid a continually evolving public health situation, NCFA will follow all local regulations and recommendations in force at the time of the event. We will be in touch with attendees in mid-April to provide any updates.


We hope to see you in April as we launch NCFA’s work into its next decade. Your sponsorship helps us work toward a future in which all children, everywhere, can thrive in permanent, nurturing families.
