Holiday Party

It’s almost time for the Annual NABA-DC Holiday Party and Awards Ceremony!  This year we will be hosting an in-person event and we are looking forward to celebrating with all of you! 


Along with honoring this year’s Award nominees and winners, NABA-DC will also hold a silent auction to raise funds for the Marine Toys for Tots Native American Program. This holiday season, many families across Indian Country are struggling financially and many have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A portion of the funds raised will also benefit NABA-DC’s 2021 annual programming. Each year, NABA-DC hosts programs and events that focus on strengthening our community and providing education on issues impacting Indian Country. 


The office of Fish & Richardson P.C. is graciously hosting the 2021 NABA-DC Holiday Party. The office does require that all guests be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. In addition, face masks are required while indoors except while eating or drinking. The NABA-DC Holiday Party will be located in both an indoor and outdoor reception area.
