Acting Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet will also be at the party, as will the former Senator Harris Wofford, who, as we know, was one of the original Mad Men of the agency and also the first CD to Ethiopia, 1962-64.

Your tickets will cover hors d’oeuvre and 2 hours (7:00 to 9:00 PM) of wine and beer. (Thank God!) Music and fun will continue to around 10:30. And in Peace Corps Volunteer tradition, there will also be an afterparty for those who just want to keep going!
