Philanthropy and mentorship take focus at exclusive gathering in the nation’s capital

WASHINGTON, DC - On October 10th in a private dining room at a downtown Washington location, a distinguished group of local male executives and influencers gathered for the launch of the Secret Supper Club; an invite-only dinner program created to deepen existing friendships, foster new ones, and stimulate intellectual and social discourse among guests. The aim of this global dinner program is to encourage attendees to discuss philanthropy, mentorship, leaving a legacy and paying it forward.

Swiss watchmaker Baume & Mercier sponsored the evening, as representatives were on hand to discuss the philanthropic and mentorship programs that the brand supports. Their slogan “Life is About Moments,” was a perfect fit for the evening’s theme. Guests were treated to dinner along with special South African wines generously donated by Kaia Wine Bar. As a thank-you for attending, guests were given a one-of-a-kind Baume & Mercier branded Lancel travel bag.

Attendees included prominent business leaders Ernie Jarvis, Larry Irving, James Woodyard, Tony Rome, Michael Pickrum, James Nixon, Oral Muir, Keith Miles, Anthony Junior, Tim Simons and Kojo Bentil Esq.
