Washington Galas: From Dolley to the Digital

First Lady Dolley Madison was one of the first Washingtonians to realize the value of a good gala. Today a wider range of gala patrons are on the scene, from ambassadors and businessmen to social media mavens and corporations. But the point of the party remains the same: good times for good causes. Here is a list of The Georgetowner's most anticipated galas this season.
