The 25th Anniversary of the Recreation Wish List Committee held its gala at Anacostia’s Southeast Tennis and Learning Center Gala Nov. 2 to celebrate the committee’s founding by former D.C. first lady Cora Masters Barry. Accolades abounded for community supporters, sport figures and political leaders, including Mayor Muriel Bowser, publicist Raymone Bain, NBA star Isiah Thomas and longtime followers. The evening program occurred under the dome of this educational and sport iconic site, transformed into a “tennis white and gold theme.” With tuxes or cocktail attire, attendees wore tennis shoes to add to the evening’s fun — some with specialized embossed slogans, such as “Go Nats” or the D.C. flag.
