The ninth annual Blue Jeans Ball raised nearly $450,000 (and counting) to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank on Sunday night.
The ball, which took place at the Marriott Wardman
Park Hotel, was all about comfort. The 700 partygoers donned their best
pair of jeans while sampling offerings from more than 30
participating restaurants, including
Michelle Obama was the honorary chair, and
Norah O’Donnell, the CBS chief White House correspondent, served as the mistress of ceremonies. To end the night, attendees danced along to
live music by the Elastic Waistband.
