According to the organizers: “The Fourth Annual District Holiday Gala fused sophistication and simplicity for the 300+ fun and fascinating young professionals who attend. With a guest list as wide ranging as the event’s organizers (representing every major industry in our fair District), Gala offers the best way to celebrate the holidays with close friends and new friends”

We somehow got invited to this, and well, we went. And danced to Shaggy’s “Wasn’t Me” before 9pm, which must mean we were having fun. So, now you get the photos to enjoy.

Event sponsors include LivingSocial, Think Food Group, Yelp, Georgetown Cupcake,, and several others, with DJ e2 spinning and Dustin Whitlow as lead photographer for the evening. Proceeds benefit DC’s own, Horton’s Kids. Want to get involved in the future? Learn more at
