The Breakfast Roundtable is a wonderful way to support Bethesda Cares and enjoy an intimate setting with some of the Washington-area’s leaders in politics, media and sports. Each quarter, Bethesda Cares hosts a breakfast with a very interesting speaker in a small-group setting. Attendees have an opportunity to enjoy a delicious breakfast, spend some time with friends and Bethesda Cares board members; listen to a fascinating discussion from the guest speaker; and have an opportunity to ask your own questions of the speaker. Since this group is limited to 50 participants, everyone has a chance to make their own inquiry to the speaker. In addition, our speakers frequently make themselves available before or after breakfast for individual questions or comments.
Participants often leave the event knowing they will be the most interesting person at the water cooler for the rest of the week!
