Georgetown Gala at the Italian Embassy on October 18, 2013
The 2013 Georgetown Gala on October 18th brought together over 400 guests, neighbors, sponsors, and politicos to celebrate Georgetown and CAG's mission of historic preservation and improving the life of the community.
This year’s event was at the stunning Italian Embassy on Whitehaven Street. The Venetian Carnivale masked ball featured a lavish Italian dinner buffet, entertainment, and unique live auction. Guests were serenaded by four opera singers at the entrance to the Embassy and the DC Love Band played during cocktails and dinner. Celebrity guest Grammy-nominated jazz saxophonist Ski Johnson, greeted the crowd and sat in with the band for a few numbers. Following dinner, DC’s favorite DJ, Adrian Loving upped the tempo and guests danced the night away – fueled by mid-night pizza from Café Milano’s outdoor oven. Co-Chairs Colleen Girouard and Robin Jones created this new format: the formal event followed by an After Party with dancing until 1:00 am, hosted and attended by the younger set of Georgetown.

The chill is in the air and in the late afternoon
you can smell the smoke from
fireplaces as you walk down the sidewalk.
It is tempting to stay a little closer to
home. And thoughts begin to turn towards
plans for the holidays. However, the Citizens Association
of Georgetown, thanks to many
volunteers, is deeply involved in the
major goings-on in our community.
Our mission... Read more >

The Citizens Association of Georgetown has, in one form or another, been representing the interests of Georgetown residents in local affairs for more than a century. The organization traces its roots to 1878, when the Georgetown Citizens Association was established as the District of Columbia's first civic group. Read more here...
