Spring Benefit and Hall of Honor


Washington’s premiere Go-Go band, Rare Essence, featuring founding member Andre “Whiteboy” Johnson ’80 and drummer Marcus Gates ’03, will be in concert as part of Archbishop Carroll High School’s Hall of Honor Inductions and Spring Benefit reception at the Kennedy Center’s Rooftop Terrace Restaurant on Monday, June 6, 2022, from 6:00-9:00 PM.
