The Best Friends Celebration lived up to that name, as it held the most elegant cocktail reception, appreciation and tribute dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown to honor Diana Davis Spencer, Debbie Dingell and Barbara Harrison on Sept. 27.
Elayne Bennett is the founder and president of Best Friends. The Heart of Gold Dinner was sponsored by the Winifred and William O’Reilly Foundation, William Bennett and Elayne Bennett.
The honorees were abundantly celebrated. As she narrated a video, Andrea Roane noted, “If we give children our best, they will respond with their best.”
Best Friends is a school-based character education program for girls that begins in the sixth grade and continues until high school graduation. Best Friends provides a character-building curriculum, an intensive peer support structure and long-term adult involvement.
