6:00pm- 9:00pm


What a night! Thank you so much for joining us at One Night One Goal.

In my first major event as Executive Director, I asked everybody in the room to step up, join our team, and support our poet-athletes. You all came through in a huge way. Thanks to the generosity of One Night One Goal guests, sponsors, and a $25,000 match from D.C. United, we raised over $360,000 – enough to bring DC SCORES to over 14 schools and more than 460 poet-athletes!

If you didn't get a chance to raise the paddle last night and still want to chip in, you can do so here.

We just wrapped up week one of in-person programming for 3,000+ poet-athletes, and we hope to be able to share more of our work with you throughout the year.

Want more soccer? Join us on Saturday, October 23rd at The Fields at RFK Campus for Fall Frenzy, our elementary school soccer tournament and community festival for over 2,000 kids! Come check it out or volunteer.

Want more poetry? Save the date for our annual Poetry Slams on November 16-18th. This spoken-word competition features DC SCORES poet-athletes performing their original poetry on stage. Click here to save to your calendar.

Please stay tuned for an event recap blog – and in the meantime, relive the evening by checking out initial photos from the evening.

Thank you for being part of our kids’ team.

Katrina Owens, Executive Director
