Gridiron Sunday Reception and Reprise: Sunday, March 4
For 130 years, a great Washington tradition known as the Gridiron Show has skewered Presidents and congressional leaders, political candidates and journalists. The Gridiron Club and Foundation first regales official Washington at a white-tie dinner on Saturday night in March with satire and songs. The next day, the club puts on another performance – known as the Gridiron Sunday Reprise - for associations, alumni groups, friends and family. Members of our alumni club have been invited to take part in this event on Sunday, March 4, 2018.
The 2018 Sunday Reprise will be held in the ballroom of the Washington Renaissance Hotel, 999 Ninth Street NW. The reception, which includes beer and wine, begins at 2 p.m. and the show starts at 3 p.m. and ends by 5 p.m. Dress is business casual.
During the reprise, you are likely to see well-known faces that might include Jake Tapper of CNN, Andrea Mitchell of NBC, Judy Woodruff of PBS and Bret Baier of Fox News. Syndicated columnist Mark Shields relays highlights of the speeches that were delivered the night before, which typically include remarks by the President – or other member of the administration - and a leading Democrat and leading Republican. Running the musical performance is the director of the President’s Own, the United States Marine Band, Lt. Col. Jason Fettig, the Club's musical director.
Tickets are $80 each. Payment method is by check and can be mailed to: Carol Stevens; 3507 N. Ohio Street, Arlington VA 22207. Checks should be made out to Gridiron Club and Foundation and put ColumbiaDC in the memo line.
