Women unite! The Ritz-Carlton at Tysons Corner was brimming with women dedicated to community service as the March of Dimes hosted it's 16th annual Heroines of Washington gala. This philanthropic gala recognizes women in the local DC area who go the extra mile for the community. Guests took part in a silent auction to raise funds for the mission while mingling and enjoying light bites during the cocktail reception. During a seated dinner, the Heroines of Washington award winners and the stars of the evening were recognized for their contributions - big congrats to Beverly Allen, Marnell Small, Maureen Riordan, Karen Singer, Gail Schnell, Asma Chaudhary, Sharnikya Howard and Amy Caro.
