D.C. United and its charitable arm, United for D.C., today announced that the Annual Kick-Off Luncheon will take place on Tuesday, March 5 at 12 p.m. The event will serve as a fundraiser for United for D.C., and will be held at The Hamilton Live DC. The luncheon is an opportunity for fans to meet the 2013 Black-and-Red players, coaches, and staff while also supporting United for D.C.'s mission to provide opportunities to disadvantaged youth through soccer, healthy lifestyle, and literacy initiatives.
