On Saturday, the coaches, managers, players, and friends of the Washington Nationals all came out to attend the annual Dream Gala, a black-tie affair set out to fund the Dream Foundation's programs to enrich DC's youth through health, education, and recreation initiatives.
Guests sipped on cocktails and enjoyed the view from the Gaylord National Resort as they bid on signed Nationals merch, Tiffany's jewelry, and luxury trips around the world. In addition to the members of the Nationals team, mascots Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln joined in on the evening's festivities.
The Nats fans out there who were not able to attend the event probably tuned into Saturday's game against the Yankees. After 14 innings, the Nats were defeated but were able to dine and unwind after the tough day at the ballpark. Ryan Zimmerman and fiancée Heather Downen continued their public love affair while Bryce Harper refused to answer any "clown questions."
Guests included: Theodore and Annette Lerner, Erica Tucker, Ryan Zimmerman and fiance Heather Downen, F. P. Santangelo, Playmate Michelle McLaughlin, Daniel Heider, Bryce Harper, Tyler Clippard, Stephen Strasburg, Lauren Pomponio, Rory Pillsbury, and Chelsey and Ian Desmond.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
