Please join us on Friday, June 7th for Esperanza’s 11th annual Benefit Concert and Awards! This year’s benefit concert and awards ceremony is brought to you by our 2019 Host Committee: Erin Fackler and Roman Goldstein, Don Graham, Cecilia Muñoz, Tom Olson and Jocelyn Samuels, and Robert Raben.

This year, we’ll be presenting the Esperanza Award to JBG Smith, our largest corporate supporter for four years running. For the past four years, JBG Smith has supported at least one full scholarship for an Esperanza scholar. They have opened their doors to our organization, and their JBG Cares committee has provided us with invaluable direct support from their employees.

We will also enjoy a musical performance by DC’s very own Haile Supreme, who mixes his Ethiopian roots with hip hop and jazz to create a unique, new sound hailed in magazines like Complex and Afropunk. Haile Supreme is also part of a collective of other new artists making waves in music festivals across the US including SXSW.

Also, we will be awarding our 2019 Scholarship Recipients and celebrating all the achievements of our Scholars these past 11 years.

Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.
