GEORGETOWN -- A professional, civic, and social organization oriented towards young Washington women, The Madison successfully pairs a series of popular social events with equally well-attended acts of volunteerism and fundraising throughout the year.

And last night, The Madison celebrated the election of its newest members with a “Meet the Madisons” party inside the stone-lined walls of Georgetown’s fashionable L2 Lounge.

A special members only pre-party began at 8:00p.m., with friends and supporters invited to join the group an hour later for a party that lasted well into the night.

Purposefully limited to an exclusive membership base of just 100, in order to balance the need for diversity with the simultaneous need for closeness within the group, The Madison opens itself up to new applicants at the beginning of each calendar year, with more than 75 women trying to fill just a half-dozen or so vacant spots.

Eligible Washingtonians (to join, you must possess a college degree, be between the ages of 21-30, and have never been married before) are encouraged to attend feeder events in the months leading-up to the nominating process – a “getting to know you” tool – and to submit a minimum of two recommendations from existing Madison members in order to even be considered for membership.

The board then weighs the totality of each application and makes acceptance decisions accordingly, with the determining factor always hinging upon each contending girl’s genuine enthusiasm for The Madison’s charitable activities.

Far from being just a social celebration, yesterday’s event therefore also served to introduce the organization’s beneficiary charity for 2011: the D.C. 501(c)3 known as No Greater Sacrifice (NGS).

Charged with the difficult mission of helping educate the children of those members of the U.S. armed services who have either been permanently wounded or given their lives in the line of duty, NGS has already committed full funding for college educations to over a dozen different soldier families since it was founded in 2008.

I don't know about you, but anyone who supports such a cause definitely sounds like someone worth meeting to us!
