2024 CFEBA Gala: Empower Tomorrow By Contributing Today

Each year at the end of the first day of the EBA Conference and Annual Meeting, the CFEBA holds its annual fundraising gala. This elegant event directly supports the foundation's grant giving activities, and supports the foundation's ability to donate grants to energy projects. The annual charitable gala is the CFEBA's largest annual fundraising event.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Charitable Foundation of the Energy Bar Association’s 2024 Fundraising Gala on Thursday, April 25 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington DC, from 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. ET. The event began with a cocktail reception, followed by a plated dinner, and remarks from CFEBA leadership. We were also excited to host Kelly Brenner of FNEFL, and Mary Spruill of The Need Project onsite to share the impact stories of their organizations.

2024 marks CFEBA’s 22nd Anniversary. Since its formation, the CFEBA has contributed over $2 million to energy-related initiatives! The support of EBA members and their organizations is critical to ensuring that CFEBA can continue to Power Positive Change this year and in the future.

Thank You to Our 2024 CFEBA Gala Sponsors!
