Point Foundation held its annual Washington DC Cornerstone Event on Thursday, May 9. Nearly 200 guests enjoyed unique small plates specially designed for this event by Black Whiskey, Café Saint-Ex, Estadio, Marin and Pearl Dive Oyster Palace as well as cocktails designed by mixologists from Bar Pilar and The Gibson. Guests heard from Point Scholar Tanner Liechty who shared his compelling story about his experience with Point Foundation. Other Point Scholars and Alumni included Michelle Carnes, Jonathan Doucette, Harjant Gill, Nick Martinez, Anna McCrerey, Scott McKee, Katie Miller, Dan O’Neill and Carl Streed.
Under the direction of the Host Committee Chairs and DC Trustees Celina Gerbin, Jack Jacobson and Aimee Schimmel, the Host Committee raised over $57,000! Special thanks goes to all of our event sponsors, participating 14th Street restaurants and mixologists and host committee for another successful Point Cornerstone event!
