Join us on November 5th, 2020 for the 25th annual Friends of MANNA reception. For the first time ever, this year’s reception will be held virtually, streaming worldwide at 6 PM Eastern Standard time.
The decision to broadcast this signature event was not one made easily. For twenty five years, MANNA Inc. has delivered an engaging, connected, multi-faceted celebration that brings together passionate change makers from all corners of our nation’s capital. This year, we’ve elected to move this event to a virtual platform, a step we feel is necessary in doing our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Even in the darkest moments, guiding light shines. In the 25th year, we forge a new path with Friends of MANNA. While we may not be able to gather to in person to celebrate MANNA’s progress in the last year, we know that this new media will gather stakeholders and engaged change makers from within and beyond the Beltway. With this change, we can reach further and strengthen our mission of Homes for All. We invite you to join us on November 5th to celebrate our progress, thank our sponsors and benefactors, and move forward with joined strength in the months to come.
We'd like to express special thank you to our sponsors, who make this event and our year-around work possible!
