HeArt & Sole Sponsorship

Make your mark on DC at the year’s best party—and show your compassion for homeless people. Together we can make a world of difference. No one should live hungry and homeless.

HeArt & Sole is the signature event of Central Union Mission, Washington, DC’s oldest private social service agency—featuring Hell’s Kitchen Winner Chef Rock Harper, celebrity chefs from all over the area volunteer their skills to provide gourmet tastes of their own creations. The glamorous evening includes a VIP chef competition, live entertainment and appearances by local celebrities all to help care for our hungry and homeless neighbors.

We’re gearing up for HeArt & Sole this year, and the tickets are going fast. Don’t miss your chance to be a HeArt & Sole sponsor and to show your community spirit to 1,000+ committed Mission supporters.
