The Story

EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2017

Hotel Monaco - 700 F Street NW | 6:00 - 9:00 PM


Founded 10 years ago by advocates concerned about the children of Wellington Park, Give Thanks & Give Back is an elegant reception that has grown to be one of the most important sources of funding and awareness for Horton’s Kids. The event provides a chance for many of our most generous supporters to gather, to get to know one another, and to learn more about how their support has changed the life of at-risk children.


The funds raised through Give Thanks & Give Back will have a real impact: in fact, if a child participates in Horton’s Kids, that child is twice as likely to graduate from high school. We need you to continue our success.
