The back-tie Lombardi Gala, now in its 23rd year, is always over the top, with a glamorous array of auction items, a luxury car raffle (this year featured a fire-engine red 2010 Lexus IS 250c convertible), a great band, a sumptuous feast catered by Windows, and the satisfaction that the $400 tickets fund one of the most important goals of any Washington event: a cure for cancer.
“Lombardi is a gift to our city,” said Tanya Adler. “Let’s celebrate the day we’ll all declare victory. The fight goes on.”
