Thank you for joining us for the
25th Annual ADF Gala

and Dwight D. & Mamie Eisenhower
Distinguished Citizen Awards

We look forward to seeing you again Fall 2022!

On Saturday, December 11, 2021, the Army Distaff Foundation held the 25th Annual ADF Gala and Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower Distinguished Citizen Awards. It was a spectacular evening of celebrating the incredible courage and dedication of the ADF and Knollwood community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the event, it was ADF’s great honor to welcome Mayor Muriel Bowser, Mayor of Washington, D.C., and present Dr. Deborah Birx, Member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force and Dr. Brian Caveney, President of Diagnostics, Labcorp with the Eisenhower Distinguished Citizen Award. Under the leadership of Chairman of the Board, GEN John M. Keane, the Gala raised incredible support for ADF’s Financial Assistance Fund, which supports Knollwood residents without financial means.

“The generosity of our donors and sponsors is truly inspiring,” said MG Tim McHale, President and CEO of ADF. “The success of this event is a testament to their belief in and importance of our mission.”

Thank you to all our corporate partners and donors who gave so generously to make this year’s Gala successful. Because of your steadfast support, aging veterans and their families receive compassionate care after a lifetime of dedicated service to our county.
