The Venue

The Anthem opened its doors to reveal its wonders on October 12, 2017. This state-of-the-art (we mean it!) venue is the anchor of the The Wharf; a $2 billion, world-class, mixed-use waterfront development located on the Washington Channel. Situated along the District of Columbia’s historic and gorgeous Southwest Waterfront, The Wharf is adjacent to the National Mall and is surrounded by some of the best restaurants, hotels and shopping DC has to offer. We look forward to seeing our Kidney Ball attendees kick off their shoes and dance the night away at this incredible venue.

2024 Honorees
