Over 1,000 people gathered under sunny skies on May 1 at the annual Trust for the National Mall Benefit Luncheon. Trust President Caroline Cunningham welcomed guests and introduced Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell by noting “she demonstrated that you can do well by doing good.” In a video presentation, Honorary Chair Laura Bush said “this is our common ground.” Trust Chairman Chip Akridge received a standing ovation and was presented with the History, Heroes and Hope Award. With over 25 million visitors a year, the National Mall has been “loved to death” and is sorely in need of repair.
