3rd Annual Black Ties Red Noses

An Elegant Night of Nonsense Serving to Benefit Clowns Without Borders USA

Close your eyes and imagine this: you’re sitting in a gorgeous courtyard in downtown D.C., but under the trees, the city feels hours away. You’re dressed to the nines, but with a twist, perhaps an outrageous bow-tie or a red nose–whatever your fancy. You’re dining on a delicious 3-course meal and sipping the finest beer or wine. Above you, in a style most becoming, wondrous creatures dazzle and delight on aerial apparatuses. It’s like a dream, a night at the circus, and with a happy grin you meander inside for some comedy and coffee. After you’ve had your fill of belly laughs and delicious dessert you waltz home in the moonlight, feeling like anything is possible.

And indeed, you have made a great many things possible this evening. By attending this fabulous event you have helped bring smiles to children around the world. You have helped send a professional volunteer performer to a place like Haiti, Colombia, or the Philippines; where our clowns recently performed for over 13,000 children and their families in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. We are a grassroots organization and your donation makes this work possible. Click here to read this wonderful article about CWB in The Huffington Post.


What’s that? You’d love to attend, but are out of town or otherwise engaged? Why not share this invitation with a friend in the DC area, so they might have the time of their life. Don’t let the word stop here. Shout it from the rooftops, from the highest mountains, or in your break room over coffee: this night should not be missed!

You can certainly still support the laughter too by quickly going to our website and making a tax-deductible donation.
