Annual Gala

  Each spring, we host a Champagne Supper in a Chevy Chase home to showcase a residence of architectural or historic significance. The event features champagne and a catered supper, musical entertainment, and exhibits that chronicle the history of the house and the surrounding area. As guests savor the house and meet new neighbors, they become more informed about Chevy Chase’s unique history and the CCHS services that can help them better appreciate that history.

Our annual gala has been hosted in Chevy Chase homes since 1982.
