50th Anniversary Wolf Trap Gala Co-Chairs

2022 Wolf Trap Ball Co-Chairs

The Gupta Family Foundation is pleased to once again support the Wolf Trap Ball in 2022 with a $50,000 sponsorship towards Wolf Trap In Bloom: The 2022 Wolf Trap Ball. This beloved annual fundraising event supports the important work of Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, a distinguished artistic, educational, and cultural resource for the nation. The Gupta Family has supported the Wolf Trap Ball since 2014, including serving as a host sponsor from 2016 to 2019, and finally, serving as co-chair and Golden Anniversary Sponsor for the Wolf Trap 50th Anniversary Gala in 2021, including a $100,000 lead gift.

As the operational and philanthropic partner to the National Park Service and Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, Wolf Trap Foundation continues to grow its philanthropic impact thanks to the generous donor community. Over the last 51 years, more than 15 million people have flocked to Wolf Trap’s three unique venues to enjoy an array of high-quality entertainment and artistry. In addition, inclusivity and accessibility are core values of Wolf Trap. Every year, the Foundation provides educational opportunities to nearly 100,000 children and teachers locally and across the country, and nearly 8,000 free tickets to families, under-served communities, and people with disabilities. Wolf Trap Institute and its arts-integrated approach increases school readiness among children who live in economically disadvantaged circumstances. Wolf Trap’s STEM Learning Through the Arts program draws national attention for its use of the arts to teach math and science fundamentals to preschool and kindergarten students.

These artistic and educational programs are made possible in part through support for the Wolf Trap Ball. More information about the 2022 event is available at https://www.wolftrap.org/calendar/event/ball.aspx
