An Evening Under the Stars

On Saturday, April 20, Global Playground introduced itself to the Washington, DC area at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Dupont Circle. Over sixty people showed up on a beautiful spring evening, contributing over $2,000 to our efforts to bring education to children in developing countries. Attendees included attorneys, business leaders, nonprofit professionals, and young professionals and friends of GP in the DC area and beyond. Among them was Ivan Vujacic, the Serbian Ambassador to the United States. The event featured excellent Thai food, various door prizes, a slide show about our first project in Uganda, and the opportunity to meet GP's Board members. It was so successful that we hope to repeat it next year. A special thanks to William & Mary's DC Office and to all of the volunteers who made the event possible.
