CELEBRATING SPRING: This historic Dupont Circle arts landmark was filled to capacity for its annual gala benefiting top-notch educational programs. Guests mingled in the courtyard or wandered through the exhibits before sitting down to a feast of locally-sourced, sustainable cuisine by Occasions Catering. Lavish flower arrangements by Jack Lucky decorated every table, and were donated to the Dept. of Veterans Affairs Medical Center following the gala. AFTER-PARTY: Endless dessert buffets, flowing cocktails, and lively dancing followed at the Society of the Cincinnati’s Anderson House, where younger partygoers joined dinner patrons in the garden to chat and enjoy the warm spring air. SPOTTED: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Justice Samuel Alito and wife Martha Ann, Bob McDonnell, artist William Christenberry, Rep. Roy and Abigail Blunt, Debbie Sigmund, and the ambassadors of Spain, Chile, Switzerland, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Morocco and Afghanistan.
