Framing the Future Gala

Save the date!
Framing the Future Gala: March 18th, 2022
Now in person!

Join us for a celebration of learning this year in PERSON!

On March 18th from 6-9pm, we will host the Framing Gala as ONE in person cocktail party where we can all gather together for a full evening of celebration, dancing, auction action, and community in support of Two Rivers. We will host a livestream program as well so that community members who prefer to participate virtually will be able to celebrate with us that evening.   

The continuing declines in the number of COVID-19 cases across the region and revised protocols from DC Health and OSSE make this return to a live gala after 2 years possible. We are grateful to our students and their families, as well as our faculty and staff, for all that you have done to help create the conditions that make these welcome steps possible. As we continue to adapt to our community’s current needs, I am grateful for your continued flexibility and partnership. The special place that is Two Rivers is made possible by your commitment to our students and community.


What does this change mean?
The timed entry, smaller Happy Hour Auction Preview parties will be replaced by one gala, that will take place on March 18th from 6-9pm. Guests will be able to have a full evening of celebration. Get your babysitters on deck!

What is the health and safety plan?
In order to keep everyone safe and healthy, the following protocols will be in place. Each guest will be required to:
     – Take a rapid antigen test within 48 hours prior to the event.
     – Submit a health attestation form prior to the event. Each guest will be emailed the form prior to March 18th.
     – Masks will be highly encouraged when not actively eating or drinking.
     – Ticket sales will be capped at 50% of the room capacity (we will welcome up to 300 guests).

What if I already purchased a ticket for one of the Happy Hours?
You don’t have to do anything except show up at 6pm with your dancing shoes on! If you would like a refund because the new time or format does not work for you, please let us know  by emailing [email protected] and we will take care of it!

What is the ticket cost?
Ticket costs have not changed. Get your tickets here, and consider sponsoring a faculty or staff member to attend the gala and celebrate with us.

About the Framing the Future Gala

Framing the Future is a highlight of the year at Two Rivers — our biggest celebration and fundraiser, held annually each spring. The event includes a showcase of student artwork; raffle with awesome prizes; and auction of student artwork, local artisans’ creative works, class baskets, staff experiences, gift cards, and more.

Even though our annual Framing the Future Gala might look a bit different this year, we will not let that stop us from celebrating the amazing learning and spirit of crew in our Two Rivers Community!

You can read more below about what this year’s Gala will look like, as well as buy tickets for this year’s raffle.

As always, thank you for supporting our students at Two Rivers!

The Gala will be on March 18, 2022. Families and friends will be asked to join us for a Celebration of Learning. Stay tuned for details on how we plan to showcase our year of learning—whether it is through the arts, expeditions or solving a math problem together—through the eyes and voices of our scholars, teachers, and Crew members. 

Our online auction will return with many amazing items up for bid. A robust, fun, auction with great items to bid on will include everything from vacation getaways to gift cards at your favorite DC spots, class baskets, teacher experiences, professional sports memorabilia, and art created by our students and local and national artists.

And back by popular demand… our raffle! We have already begun selling raffle tickets and would love for you to join us. This year’s top prizes are a brand new Peloton (or its cash value), a $1,000 Target gift card, and a $500 Visa gift card! Get your tickets today! Start your own campaign today by visiting here.

Thank you to our 2022 Supporters!
