Reservations for the annual Christmas Ball that will be held at the prestigious Congressional Country Club on December 1 will come in very quickly this year and the Ball will be fully subscribed! So don't wait to make your reservation
 
 
These are a few of the highlights of the types that have made this a popular event - at capacity each year - for Wharton Club members, their guests, and all other attendees:
  • Under the gracious patronage of an Ambassador who will lead the Procession of Dignitaries,
  • Opening Ceremonies will be presented by Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy performing the traditional Fledermaus Quadrilles. It promises to be a sparkling performance!
  • Performing Soloists TBA
 
Additonal note: Champagne Reception will include an array of delicious desserts, champagne, wines and soft drinks.
 
We hope you will be able to join us for this Washington tradition! It is a great privilege to be invited back once again this year, and to offer you a fabulous, affordable way to celebrate the holidays with friends and colleages, as well as members of our Club.
 
Normally, a ball of this caliber would be anywhere from $250 to $500 per person - or more - so we are privileged to offer this holiday treat for an amount that should fit your budget. Also, part of the proceeds will go to a charity, so you have the chance to have a great time, and help a good cause!

RSVP: We request the favor of a reply as soon as possible, given the limited number of places, the fact that this even always reaches capacity quickly, and the virtually limitless enjoyment of a festive evening celebrating the holiday season.
 
This has been a favorite of Wharton Club Members & guests for years!
