On Sunday night, the Washingtonian Starry Night Inaugural Ball brought together more than 800 guests at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum for dinner, an open bar featuring Beam, Heineken, Potomac Point Winery, and American Summits limited edition inaugural water bottles, live music courtesy of the band Kaleidoscope, and unlimited access to one of the world’s most popular museums.

The evening honored Bonnie Carol of TAPS, which cares for the families of our fallen heroes. AT&T, PwC, and White House Black Market showed their support as vice presidential sponsors of the event, and Capital One, Family Matters of Greater Washington, KPMG, the Northeast MAGLEV, Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation, and Reed Smith entertained guests in their VIP lounges.
