The Gaylord National Resort is a few minutes away from the National Children’s Museum, Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, and the Old Town Waterfront and a short drive away from historic Washington D.C. attractions such as the Smithsonian, National Zoo, the White House and the Washington Monument.
Each year, NCASEF hosts live and silent auctions during its annual convention and trade show. Proceeds benefit Swim Across America, a 501(c)3 non-profit that hosts charity swims with the proceeds funding cancer research.
NCASEF and Swim Across America have been partners since 2013, raising $750,000 that has funded life-saving cancer research. We kindly ask our vendors and partners to donate items and experiences that can be featured in the auctions.
