Event Details

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Capital Chapter will kick off the fall social season with one of the most glamorous and prestigious evenings held in the Washington, D.C. area. The Ambassadors Ball brings the worlds of business and politics together, while raising vital funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This black tie gala, held at the Georgetown Ritz Carlton, Washington, D.C., hosts members of the Washington Diplomatic Corps, Congressional leaders, and a variety of local and national celebrities who enjoy a unique, international silent auction, a superb dinner, a night of dancing and most importantly, making connections that transcend countries. Since its inception, the Ambassadors Ball has raised more than $18 million for the National MS Society's movement toward a world free of multiple sclerosis.


Silent Auction

Ambassadors and their spouses donate items from their home country, including travel packages, artwork, wines, and even group dinners at the Embassies, to be auctioned off and raise funds for the Society. Auction items also serve to showcase the unique beauty of each Ambassador’s home country.
Corporations and individuals also donate auction items, which can range from U.S. travel destinations to sports memorabilia and theatre tickets in the Washington, D.C. area.
If you have ever dreamed of dining with an Ambassador at their residence with 10 of your friends, or decorating your home with international crafts and works of art, you won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to help a great cause.
