Over 400 people attended the Jubilee 2017 Roast of Kathleen Matthews at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center on Thursday evening May 11th. County Councilmember Craig Rice did a masterful job with the live auction, and Jubilee Board member and DARCARS President and CEO John Darvish, Jr., along with his Jubilee friends, asked everyone in attendance to dig deeper and give a little more.
Master of Ceremonies Gordon Peterson told stories of his many years of working with Kathleen in broadcast news. Alison Starling showed video clips of people in the channel 7 news room and their stories about Kathleen. Congressman Jamie Raskin roasted Kathleen and her husband and fellow roaster Chris Matthews. Chris Matthews explained why Kathleen would never be President.
Many thanks to our Presenting sponsor DARCARS Automotive Group, our Diamond Sponsor Kaiser Permanente, our many other sponsors, our Jubilee Roast Planning Committee Chaired by Susan Hoffmann and everyone who came out for a fun evening to help Jubilee raise money for the work that we do.
Tim Wiens, Executive Director
