Where else can you rock sneakers with your tux? On September 14, more than 50 pro athletes and sports legends will come together at the National Building Museum for the seventh annual SneakerBall. Count on many favorites from our local teams to be there, and awards, including Sportsperson of the Year and Fan Choice, will be presented.

Tickets are sold in tables of ten ($7,500 per table), and admission includes a reception, silent and live auctions, an awards show, and a seated dinner. Tickets for the after party are sold separately ($125 each). Proceeds will benefit the Greater Washington Sports Alliance Foundation and its efforts to support emerging nonprofits that use sports to enrich children’s lives.


SneakerBall is the only black tie and sneakers gala that annually celebrates the best of sports in the Greater Washington, D.C. region. The event is organized to recognize the Greater Washington Sports Alliance Foundation, the non-profit foundation of the Sports Alliance that uses the philanthropic generosity of individual and corporate donors to make strategic investments in emerging non-profits that use sports to enhance children’s lives.
