Enjoying the full moon over the Linden trees in the back terrace on Oct. 18, more than 850 global leaders attended the 45th Annual Meridian Ball, setting a new attendance record for this landmark event in the nation’s capital. The ball got some heavy hitters involved: Congressional co-chairs Sen. Roy Blunt and Abigail Blunt and Rep. John Delaney and April McClain-Delaney; honorary sponsor Ambassador Capricia Penavic Marshall, former Chief of Protocol of the United States; ball chair Dalia Mroue-Fateh, founder & CEO of Salt Productions LLC; corporate chair Christophe Navarre, chairman & CEO of Moët Hennessy; White-Meyer chair Britlan Malek; and Young Professional co-chairs Frances Holuba and Jaclyn Mason. The 2013 Ball was generously supported by presenting sponsor Moët Hennessy.
