Gala Benefit Dinner

The annual Gala Benefit dinner is SSPI's biggest fundraiser. The money we raise supports our membership, chapter and industry-support programs throughout the year. It is also the number-one place in our industry to see and be seen, and there are many ways to take advantage of that opportunity.

  • Gala Reception, 6:30-8:00 pm, Washington Convention Center, Ballroom Foyer
