  Get Directions

Along with our Honorary Co-Chairs, Mrs. Karen Pence and Mrs. Jill Donnelly, the Indiana Society of Washington DC is delighted to invite you join us for our 2017 Inaugural Ball on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at the Grand Hyatt Washington.  We are planning an elegant candlelit evening of dinner and dancing to celebrate Indiana’s Bicentennial (1816-2016) and the Inauguration of our new President Donald Trump and Indiana’s native son, Vice President Mike Pence!!  We will also honor Indiana’s new Governor Eric Holcomb and Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, as well as Indiana’s Congressional Delegation.

Our festivities will begin at 6 pm with a Cocktail reception where some 950 Hoosiers in formal attire will be greeted by strolling strings.  Next, our guests will be treated to a sumptuous dinner presented by the renowned Chef at the Grand Hyatt.  Dancing to the sounds of the Gene Donati Orchestra will begin during dinner and carry the celebration into the late evening hours.

We hope you will join us!  Utilizing the information below, please purchase your tickets as soon as possible as we have limited availability. If you have questions, please contact us on our Inaugural Ball hotline, (202)508-8500 or send us an email at indiana.inaugural@gmail.com.
