Last night over 2,600 foodies found themselves in culinary bliss at Dine-N-Dash 2017 and helped us to raise $543,000 for World Central Kitchen’s Smart Solutions to Hunger and Poverty! The night kicked off with an exclusive MGM National Harbor pre-reception for VIP guests, featuring FISH by José Andres, Marcus, Felt, and the Voltaggio Brothers Steakhouse. From there, guests dined their way through over 30 restaurants in Penn Quarter and 14th Street and hung out with our special guests José Andrés, Andrew Zimmern, and Ted Allen.
The night culminated in an exclusive VIP afterparty at Studio Theatre, where guests enjoyed ramen by Paper Horse, desserts by Momofuku Milk Bar and other top DC sweet spots, cocktails by Kyirisan, and the debut of World Central Kitchen’s Smart Roast coffee.
Thanks to the support of our guests and generous sponsors, World Central Kitchen raised almost double the amount raised last year. These proceeds will go directly towards empowering communities and strengthening economies around the world. Check out some of our favorite photos below—we can’t wait to see you next year!
