An after-hours tour will allow attendees to go behind the scenes in the most iconic home in America, discover his unique plan for his gardens and landscape, and learn the fascinating history of Mount Vernon’s outbuildings as well as why they are still standing. With all of Washington’s achievements, the site will be an inspirational location for the CARH reception!

The networking reception at the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City on Tuesday, June 19th will give attendees the opportunity to bid on some very appealing raffle items. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit both CARH and the Scholarship Foundation.
