Members can also buy one guest ticket at the member prices.

For non-members, tickets are $150 for the general reception and dinner and $200 for the deluxe package, which includes admittance to the VIP reception, a gift bag and dinner.

Payment is required at the time of reservation. There will be no refunds. Reservation can be made by calling (202) 662 – 7501.

Proceeds will benefit the Club’s Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library and its training programs.
