WCC Sunset Dinner Fundraiser

Volunteers Needed

Interested in volunteering? Great! 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 autumnchild@gmail.com if you want to help out.


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.
