On Tuesday, February 12th, Hanover served as the Hope Partner and Presenting Sponsor of the 15th Annual St. Jude Gourmet Gala. The “Mardi Gras for the Kids” event raised $3 million for this research hospital that treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Our CEO, Peter Dodge, served as one of the event’s three co-chairs and was frequently recognized throughout the event.
This gala was held at the National Building Museum and featured tastings and food competitions between over 40 of DC’s top celebrity chefs and their respective restaurants. The event also featured a silent auction, in which several Hanover employees won some amazing prizes!
Hanover employees represented a small number of the approximately 800 people in attendance, but succeeded in contributing more than $100,000 of the $550,000 raised at the event!
