About the Gala

The annual Framing the Future Gala is Two Rivers’ largest fundraiser and raises money to support the robust arts education program. Each year, the Gala brings in more than $140,000 in one night.

  1. Rub elbows with DC's finest! Hundreds of people from families and business leaders to government representatives and corporate representatives attend each year
  2. Compete for your 'Piece of DC.' Our auctions feature art from professional artists - and kid art, too! Thanks to numerous donations, the auction also includes gift certificates to restaurants and spas; sporting event tickets; and a wide array of services for home and travel!
  3. Fine dining from local restaurants, breweries, and distilleries. Some of DCs finest purveyors of food and beverage serve delicious morsels and tasty beverages
  4. Dance the night away! After the auctions close, join us on the dance floor. Entertainment includes a student performance, live music from a local band and DJ

Through the arts program at Two Rivers, preschool through 8th grade students not only learn to draw, sing, paint, and act, they are offered fun and engaging ways to sharpen their critical thinking skills and reflect on their own practice - skills that Two Rivers believes are at the heart of deeper learning.
