COME RALLY WITH US!

2024 Gala Invitiation

Join WTEF as we celebrate the continued achievements of our scholar athletes and come together to Fund-the-Future helping us to continue our work in building future life Champions!

YOUR SUPPORT IS IMPORTANT NOW MORE THAN EVER

The WTEF 2024 Annual Share the Love Gala is shaping up to be better than ever as we prepare to host our amazing gala at the beautiful Waldorf-Astoria!

Saturday, May 4, 2024 | 6pm – 11pm | Black Tie Optional

Share the Love Gala guests will enjoy a private entrance into the gala for a lovely cocktail reception with premium open bars followed by a three-course gala wine dinner and awards ceremony. The Waldorf-Astoria culinary team will be preparing an exquisite menu with wine pairings, and Pastry Chef Anderson Colmenares will create a custom dessert exclusively for our gala. Enjoy browsing our exciting Bid-It to Win-It Silent Fundraising Auction filled with unique experiences and items on which to bid!

Our Share the Love Gala is famous for having the best hosts in the business, and this year will be no exception. We are thrilled and incredibly grateful to have back as our 2024 host, News4 Anchor, Mr. Jim Handly, who will be joined this year by co-host News4 Anchor Jummy Olabanji. We are also pleased to have back our favorite auctioneer and friend of the gala, Mr. Max Wolf, who will activate the crowd with an energetic Live Auction and Fund-the-Future Paddle Raise. As is our tradition, we will feature a heartfelt welcome video by friend of the gala, Mr. Frances Tiafoe, and our awards ceremony will present awards to our distinguished honorees, legacy award recipient, and student achievers. Plenty of delightful touches will abound, and we will top the evening off by dancing the night away to DC’s own, The Original Moonlighters.

Help us continue our mission to Build Future Life Champions by supporting one of Washington DC’s most impactful events, the WTEF 2024 ANNUAL SHARE THE LOVE GALA.
