The Dinner of Champions provides funding for Lessans Camp JCC’s nationally-recognized fully inclusive summer camp for children and young adults of all abilities.

At this event, we will induct individuals into the Greater Washington Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and present the Hyman M. and Phillip D. Perlo Award to high school athletes.

Nominations are now open and must be submitted by February 24, 2023.
