You're Invited! The 2018 National Capital A Cinderella Ball

The House Student Leadership Center welcomes Academy Award winning actor, Grammy Award winning musical artist and renowned comedian, Jamie Foxx, and renowned artist David Garibaldi to perform at its thirteenth anniversary gala and presentation of the National Capital A Cinderella Ball in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, June 3, 2018 at The Willard InterContinental.  One of Washington, D.C.’s most recognized charity events and a respected youth advocacy project, the National Capital A Cinderella Ball celebrates children of America’s men and women in uniform affected by a life-limiting disability or illness. Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is the Honorary Host of the 2018 anniversary gala.

Founded by The House Student Leadership Center, an originator and provider of youth out-of-school time programs in the Washington, D.C. region, the National Capital A Cinderella Ball is a quality-of-life public service initiative guided by their students’ input and values for the inclusion of their disabled peers.  The gala features a banquet, entertainment, awards, and after-party.  Individual and corporate donors partner with The House Student Leadership Center’s consciousness of youth leadership and social justice matters in communities to build a more equitable and inclusive world.

In a statement, Jamie Foxx said, "I’m honored to collaborate with The House Student Leadership Center to empower its youth as they take another step toward building a kinder world.” Foxx is currently executive producing and hosting a unique, interactive game show called “Beat Shazam” where two teams of two individuals race against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. Foxx also earned Oscar®, Golden Globe, SAG Award, BAFTA Award, and Image Award nominations in the category of Best Supporting Actor for his work in Michael Mann’s dramatic thriller Collateral, opposite Tom Cruise.

One of the most talked about performances in the Ball’s history, David Garibaldi's show, Rhythm and Hue, is a music and color experience.  His art and music will collide during the annual Gala celebration. The performances he unwittingly practiced as a graffiti rebel in his garage is now on a public stage.  As a performance painter, Garibaldi creates images through his body movement and brushes while communicating via music to an amazed audience. “I create images in an entraining way and my hope is to inspire the audience to use their passion to benefit and inspire others,” said Garibaldi. “That is music and color. That is rhythm and hue.”
