The annual National MS Society Ambassadors Ball, a premier event in the Washington, D.C. fall social season for the past four decades, has raised more than $21 million to support the National MS Society. The 43rd Ambassadors Ball welcomes Congressional Members, Ambassadors, business and philanthropic leaders, and their spouses to honor the Diplomatic Corps for their charitable activities and humanitarian endeavors. 


The National Multiple Sclerosis Society exists because there are people with MS. Our vision is a world free of MS. Everything we do is focused so that people affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever. 

There will be limited in-person attendance available for the event. To become a sponsor or secure your table now, contact Amanda Snellings at 202-375-5620 or


Thank you for your generous support. We are excited to celebrate with you safely at the Ambassadors Ball at the District Pier at the Wharf on September 30, 2021. We've planned every detail of this event with the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, and staff as our highest priority. Safety protocols are in place that follows current guidance from the CDC, as well as state, city, and other local agencies. This includes mandatory face coverings for individuals who are not fully vaccinated by an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine, reduced touchpoints to minimize physical interactions, and adhering to the capacity limits of the venue. Please note that plans may be altered as the event day approaches to ensure your safety. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.
