We’re inviting you to RAISE A GLASS and join us for a fundraiser to support our arts and education programs!
At the Kennedy Center, we believe that everyone should learn about and engage with the arts—so much so that we create transformative arts experiences with our local collaborators for over 100,000 students in the D.C. area every year. These kids’ creativity and excitement is boundless and inspiring, and it’s an awesome responsibility to keep these programs alive.

After the curtain goes down on the gala performance of HAMILTON on July 25, members of the Hamilton company will join us in the Grand Foyer for dessert, an open bar, and dancing to music spun by legendary DJ D-NICE and DJ J.PERIOD from The Hamilton Mixtape. Box ticket holders are invited to an exclusive reception before the show.

Passes to RAISE A GLASS on July 25 include a donation to the Kennedy Center’s arts and education programs, tickets to the July 25th performance of Hamilton, and special access to the event in the Grand Foyer. Join us for this celebration of all the arts can do in our communities!

Performance Timing: Act One - 74 min.; Intermission - 18 min.; Act Two - 74 min.
Hamilton is recommended for ages 10+. There is some strong language and non-graphic adult situations.
