OUR ANNUAL
DC EVENT


Every year, diverse and influential guests gather in support of Development without Dependency. A long-time fixture of DC, Roots of Development’s annual fundraising event brings together leaders in the business, political, and non-profit spheres to show their solidarity with the fight against poverty.

In 2023, more than 125 people enjoyed a night of food, wine, and music, at the beautiful District Winery in Washington, DC. Special guests included Congresswoman Sheila Cherfilus McCormick, Dr. Robert Fatton, and DC City Councilmember Robert White.
