3rd Annual RVA Celebrity Dish


  • October 7, 2021 | 6:30 pm

The 3rd Annual RVA Celebrity Dish to benefit Podium RVA, hosted on October 7, 2021 from 6:30 – 8:30pm, will honor Anne Holton, attorney, judge, and former Secretary of Education for the Commonwealth of Virginia; Coach Dave Robbins, longtime Virginia Union University head men’s basketball coach and winner of three national titles; and George Martin, Managing Partner of McGuireWoods’ Richmond Office and former Rector of University of Virginia. We honor them each for their outstanding contributions to our city and for their commitment to ensuring that kids in our community have a rich and dynamic platform for expression and achievement. We hope you will join us as we “roast and toast” Anne Holton, Coach Dave Robbins, and George Martin.

Experience the night! The RVA Celebrity Dish includes live music, “dishing” on our honorees, spoken word from Podium students, a silent auction, fun raffle items, and more. Enjoy the fine dining and beautiful experience of The Hippodrome while simultaneously supporting those who need it the most: the youth.

This year marks Podium’s 12th year helping Richmond youth build their writing, communication, and leadership skills in preparation for success in school, career, and in life. By attending The Dish, you play a vital role in the development of these communities.

Your early RVA Celebrity Dish sponsorship commitment will ensure your name and logo are visible throughout Podium’s event season and are included on all invitations, digital, and printed materials.
