A Vintage Affair 2020 will be held at the Andrew W. Mellon on March 7, 2020. This year’s event will be of extraordinary significance, as both The Board of Visitors and Children’s National will celebrate their 150th birthdays, which is truly momentous for us and for Washington, DC.  This year’s A Vintage Affair will feature, as always, fine wines and outstanding cuisine, as well as the opportunity to bid on special wines, unique vacations and dining experiences during the silent and live auctions.

The Board of Visitors, through A Vintage Affair, enables Children’s National to expand the horizons of pediatric care. This impact can be seen across the hospital, making a real difference for the families in its care. In the past 5 years, A Vintage Affair has raised nearly $5M. These proceeds fund the The Board of Visitors’ Annual Grants and Major Gift Program, which support programs at Children’s National outside the constraints of the operating budget. During the past 3 years, the Board of Visitors has awarded a Major Gift of $1.5M for the Immunotherapy Initiative to treat cancer and other diseases and $1.3M to launch the Hospital’s Telemedicine Command Center.
