Save the Date for the 24th Anniversary Clearing the Path Gala! 

We look forward to welcoming our honored guests to the Marshall Legacy Institute's 24th Anniversary Clearing the Path Gala, to be held on October 20, 2021 at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, DC. During this celebratory evening, we will honor individuals whose work and dedication to help others has withstood the trials and challenges of the past year. We are thrilled to once again share with you an evening filled with stories of survival, perseverance and hope.
