Throughout the year, we are constantly looking for ways to both engage and thank our members. Afterall, becoming a member of QAIC means becoming part of our family. During our many open-door events, and always during those which are invite-only, we offer special gathering space with elevated food and drinks for members-only. While this allows us to show our gratitude, it also creates a space for members to get to know one another, as well as the opportunity for our leadership team to become acquainted with new and catch up with long-time members.
With engagement and appreciation in mind, and a day of thunderstorms finally moving out, it was time to join three of our members at the DC United v. Inter Miami soccer match at Audi Field. Offered on a first come first served basis, special tickets in the private EagleBank Club were offered exclusively to our Supporting Friends ($450/yr.) and Patrons ($900/yr.). Prior to the start of the match, there was plenty of time to browse and enjoy the sumptuous buffets of various cuisine, beverages of every variety, and plenty of snacks, all included with club house tickets.
As we enjoyed time together on the club’s rooftop patio, and getting to know one another better, there was a flyover of three military helicopters, the same type and formation used by the President of the United States. Fireworks went off, the Star-Spangled Banner was sung, and we were off!
The action on the field was nonstop! With seats less than 10 rows from the field, and right by one of the goals, our member-guests had lots to keep their excitement high! Along with the excitement of the game, the friendships continue to grow through sport.
In the words of one of our newest Supporting Members …
“Being a Supporting Member of QAIC has allowed me to meet and engage with other community members who are enthusiastic about QAIC’s art and culture programs. Fellow members are warm and engaging, and the events and exclusive perks are enjoyable!” – Mohammad S.
