~ The 5th Anniversary Celebration of The Menkes Foundation ~


Please join us on Friday, May 4th, 2012 at the Key Bridge Marriott, Arlington, VA on the outskirts of our nation’s capital for an elegant evening to celebrate five years of The Menkes Foundation.

The evening will commence with a cocktail hour at 7 pm as our signature cocktail is served to all (or your choice of adult beverage), drinks will be accompanied by a local artisan cheese display and two hot varieties of butler passed hors d’oeuvres. During this time our guests are free to socialize as they enjoy browsing an impressive array of silent auction items. A variety of Menkes awareness items will also be available for purchase. Dinner will begin promptly at 8pm with a lavish three course meal, starting with salad, an entrée choice of Garlic-Lemon Rosemary Chicken OR Salmon with two sides, followed by a scrumptious chocolate cake.

Tickets are $75 per person

Our event will be on the top floor of the luxurious Key Bridge Marriott with incredible panoramic views of Washington, DC.  This location was chosen as the backdrop because of the wonderful medical care our son Wesley received when he was diagnosed with Menkes at DC Children’s Hospital. We hope hosting this near our nation’s capital will also make it possible for you to enjoy all the DC area has to offer. All proceeds from this event will be used in promoting understanding and awareness of Menkes through advertisements in medical journals.

Checks made payable to: The Menkes Foundation
 23397 Dahlia Circle, California, MD 20619

Upon purchasing of your dinner tickets we will provide you with information about accommodations including blocked rooms at a reduced rate for our guests.
