About the Diamond Gala

The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command will host the 2nd Annual Diamond Gala on March 9, 2019 at the Fairmont Hotel in the heart of the Nation’s Capital. The purpose of the Diamond Gala is to raise funds and awareness for The Salvation Army’s Anti-Human Trafficking Program, with additional opportunities to support other vital services offered by The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army has cared for survivors of human trafficking since its founding in England in 1865, and is filling a critical gap in the Anti-Human Trafficking effort today having officially opened an emergency shelter and crisis response team to support adult survivors in the summer of 2018.

Serving anyone in crisis, whether it is by providing a hot meal, emergency assistance or a more long-term solution, for over 130 years in the National Capital Area,  The Salvation Army has offered solutions to the issues of poverty, addiction and abuse that exists in our society.
