Washington, DC Cornerstone Society Event

Point Foundation held its annual Washington, DC Cornerstone at the Equality Center on Thursday, May 3. Nearly 100 guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers as they heard from Executive Director & CEO Jorge Valencia and Point Scholar Dan O’Neill and Alumna Ashland Johnson who shared their compelling stories about their experiences with Point Foundation. Under the direction of Regent & Host Committee Chair Glen H. Ackerman more than $48,000 was raised. A special thanks goes to the sponsors and the Host Committee for making this another successful Point Cornerstone event!
