We're still taking donations to support boathouse rehabilitation. Thank You.
We're still looking for volunteers! We need people to help with service during the dinner, set up, take down and cleaning the club the morning of the event. Email Liz Wissner at email@example.com if you want to help out.
We’re still looking for auction items for the evening of the dinner.
Weekend Getaways: Do you have a beach house, lake house or vacation home that you would donate for a weekend?
Outings and Experiences: Donate a spa gift card, local brewery or distillery tour, sunset cruise, museum tickets or sports tickets.
Food and Wine: Restaurant gift certificates, catering service, cooking classes or food/wine gift baskets.
Consider donating your talent: Are you a chef that wants to provide a picnic lunch for some paddlers? A home cook who wants to host a dinner? Care to lead a paddling tour or class, and provide refreshments on the dock afterwards?
Please email Liz Wissner at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to contribute.
Join us at the club for a cocktail reception followed by an elegant sit-down dinner along the most picturesque part of the Potomac River.
Michelin-Star restaurant Maydan will be premiering a 3-course family-style dinner from their newest concept "Tawle" (meaning Table in Arabic). Tawle, coming to Arlington next year, is a casual Middle Eastern restaurant offering a kebab-centric menu. Those attending the Sunset Dinner will be among the first to savor this fabulous new menu!
Legendary Washington DC entertainment venue Eighteenth Street Lounge will immerse us in curated Middle Eastern inspired music throughout the evening.

The annual Sunset Dinners are truly a team effort. Volunteers will be needed to pitch in to make our space look beautiful and create a fun and festive atmosphere for our guests.
Funds raised from the event will help us move closer to our boathouse restoration efforts. Beyond the fundraising, the dinner is an amazing opportunity to spend time together as a community and socialize with new and old friends.
Another way to engage with the event is by being a sponsor. Sponsorship includes some amazing benefits, which would be a great fit for a small business team retreat, a client outing, or a special event with friends. Consider purchasing a sponsorship and/or sharing with friends/colleagues who might be interested.
