Event Details

The Ambassadors Ball is one of the first events on Washington's full social calendar. While raising vital funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, this black tie gala 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 wonderful dinner, and a night of dancing.

Over the past 35 years, the Ambassadors Ball has raised nearly $18 million for the Society's movement toward a world free of MS.


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.


Unlike many of our events, there are a limited number of volunteer roles at the Ambassadors Ball. While we greatly appreciate every offer of support, we may not be able to utilize all interested persons at this year's event.
