Why it matters: The dinner brings together journalists who cover Washington, D.C., and often features influential hosts. The event is the primary source of revenue for the White House Correspondents' Association.
- The WHCA says it is working to host a virtual event "that would allow us to salute award-winning journalism, toast an impressive group of scholarship winners, and still enjoy a few laughs."
