The L’Enfant Society hosted their Second Annual Ball on the Mall to raise funds for efforts to restore and improve The National Mall. Over 700 people attended the sold-out event that was held in a tent on the National Mall overlooking the U.S. Capitol and Washington Monument. The ball exceeded the L’Enfant Society’s fundraising goals by $130,000 for a total of $350,000 raised. Since its founding in 2008, the L’Enfant Society has raised more than $500,000 for the Trust for the National Mall’s efforts to restore and improve the National Mall.
