Deets: The Nationals Homecoming Gala will celebrate an entirely new chapter for the Dream Foundation and the return of baseball season to Washington. We will welcome home the 2019 Washington Nationals roster and introduce the Foundation’s strategic vision for the future. We will kick off baseball season in a way that has never been done before: with a can’t-be-missed event that includes a red carpet, activation around the District Wharf, and a cocktail reception followed by a dinner, program, live auction, and musical performance. The Nationals Homecoming Gala will be the team’s premier off-the-field event.

Together, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy have harnessed the power of baseball to deliver tangible opportunity for area youth in underserved communities and meaningful community impact in the greater metro area.  Through the generosity of Nationals fans, player philanthropy, corporate champions, and community partners, this collective philanthropic enterprise can fuel even greater good for a better Washington.
