In this post, we are so excited to feature the 2018 Project HOPE Gala held at The Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium. Project HOPE hosts an annual fundraising gala each year, and in 2018, the former First Lady Mrs. Laura Bush was the keynote speaker. We were captivated by her speech, and our team loved documenting this historic experience.

About the Venue: This stunning venue was fit to serve such an honorary event. The Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium is a 750-seat historic Neoclassical auditorium located front and center along Constitution Avenue. The magnificent auditorium displays its gorgeous architecture as a focal point connecting two wings of the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building. True to the name, the acoustics were perfect for this annual gala featuring a speaker.
