CoBank Ag Open

After a year of missed play, we are excited to announce that the 2021 CoBank AG Open is in full swing! The golf tournament is set for Monday, September 20th at Westfield Golf Club in Clifton Virginia. 

Over the past 25 years, the agricultural community has raised more than $1,000,000 through this event in support of Everybody Wins DC (EWDC). EWDC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that uses books and reading programs to help children thrive. Because of you, children across the region have built the skills needed to succeed in the classroom, in college, and in careers. Thank you.

Proceeds from this year’s event will help EWDC expand reading-based and career exploration programming for even more students at a time when such support is critical.

Everybody Wins DC would like to acknowledge the following dedicated sponsors:

Agricultural & Food Transporters Conference, Agricultural Retailers Association, Alston Bird LLC, Altria Client Services, American Association of Crop Insurers, American Farm, Bureau Federation, Bayer, CoBank, CropLife America, Ducks Unlimited, Elanco Animal Health, Farm Credit, FIA, Florida Sugar Cane League, International Dairy Foods Association, Jill Sommers, Livestock Marketing Association, Mike Torrey Associates, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council, Renewable Fuels Association S-3 Group, Syngenta, The Russell Group, Tyson Foods Inc., USA Rice Federation, and Watkinson Miller PLLC.

Everybody Wins DC would like to congratulate S-3 Group, winners of the Katrichis Cup.

Lawyers for Literacy

Lawyers for Literacy is EWDC’s annual fundraising trivia competition for legal professionals, where firms compete for the coveted title of "Master of Literacy" all while raising critical funds for EWDC’s reading programs. This year’s competition will be held in-person by our gracious hosts, Sidley Austin in June 2022. More details to come.

Fair warning, this isn't your ordinary trivia competition. Even your law degree(s) won't prepare you for this line of questioning, so assemble your best team.

2020 Everybody Wins DC Gala

Although we were unable to come together on March 11 for our 25th anniversary celebration, we were elated by the flexibility and overwhelming support we received during our first-ever Virtual Gala! For 2-hours supporters tweeted, posted gifs, reshared posts and sent in touching photos and videos all to support our cause. At the end of the night, we raised $300,000.

Thank you to all our supporters, sponsors, auction bidders, and donors for your contributions! This incredible support allows us to continue introducing children to the joys of reading with a caring mentor by their side.
