On Sunday, April 26, 2020 Mission Partners hosted a virtual fundraiser to support The Theatre Lab—Washington, D.C.’s largest and most comprehensive independent, nonprofit school for the dramatic arts.

At its core, the virtual event’s theme was: donation meets participation. As the DC community adapted to the harsh realities of COVID-19, many people were looking to connect with each other while social distancing. Our Sunday Supper presented a unique opportunity to create an interactive virtual fundraiser without sacrificing a meaningful audience experience. Prior to the show, participants were encouraged to order dinner from their favorite small business to help expand impact across the restaurant industry. 

In total, Mission Forward® helped raise over $4,000 to support The Theatre Lab’s programming, operations, and staff during the COVID-19 crisis

“The event was more special than we ever could have imagined. We’re grateful to our friends and colleagues at Mission Partners for creating a wonderful event and including us as beneficiaries.”
