Mascot Appearance Request


Are you looking for a way to add some life to your parties, business meetings, or special events? Try a visit from GW's favorite mascot George.  GW fans and students alike can't help but love the fun antics of our founding father, George Washington!  If you would like to have an exciting and memorable addition to your birthday party, sales meeting, classroom, or special event, please fill out the form below and hit "SUBMIT".  Our Mascot Coordinator will respond to your request within 5 business days.
