What to expect
Weather permitting, you will check in with GGWash staff at the large open window on Georgia Avenue before proceeding through the main entrance. Venue security will be checking identification at the door.
GGWash has reserved half of Hook Hall as well as an outdoor “cabana” to provide hybrid indoor-outdoor space. Inside the hall, you'll find high-top tables, the silent auction, the bar, food, restrooms, and, importantly: skee ball! In the reserved outdoor cabana, you'll find a range of comfortable seating.
Food and drink
Your ticket includes a menu of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as hors d'oeuvres and pizza catered by Timber Pizza. If you are vegan or gluten-free, please check in with the registration volunteers upon arrival for information about food options.

Get ready to bid! Here's a sneak peek at some of the amazing silent auction items that will be featured at the Soirée: A weekend away at a three-bedroom vacation home on the Potomac, a scooter from King Micromobility, Patagonia gear, a transit-oriented adventure to Burlington, Vermont, prints of DC and Silver Spring from Terratorie, a gift card to Terrapin Bicycles, and much, much more!
The silent auction will close at 8:30 pm; if possible, please stick around to pay for and collect your winning items on-site. We're so grateful to all who have donated silent auction items!
We can't wait to see you to eat, drink, play skee ball, and celebrate everything that the GGWash family – volunteers, staff, board, friends – has accomplished over the last 15 years!
