Why Attend/Sponsor the Gala

The DC Metro BLN is the proud winner of the prestigious 2017 USBLN Affiliate of The Year. We are the only BLN Affiliate to have been recognized twice for the award, having also received it in 2012. Our recognition comes from the hard work and passion of our board and team. A driving focus of our BLN is the work we do with millennials and employers. 

It is with great pleasure that the DC Metro BLN announces our 3rd Annual Gala to support youth with disabilities in career transition. This year’s theme, “Engaging Tomorrow’s Leaders Today,” supports our commitment to youth with disabilities. 

Please review our Sponsorship Opportunities and Auction Donation form and consider both sponsoring and donating to this year’s gala. The auction will be LIVE again this year, and we are seeking donations appropriate to that venue. 

Funds raised will address three most critical areas for both employer and millennial talent! 

Preparing the Pipeline of college students and graduates for successful career transition by supporting our ongoing ME Collaborative e-Learning for area universities. 

Connecting the Pipeline through a series on industry-specific virtual career fairs that will more effectively and successfully connect talent with careers. 

Building the Pipeline will include two 2018 roundtable discussions among employers, universities and students on branding, building trust and professional careers.
