In 1987 Frank Zinzi, with sons Frank Jr. and Chris, held the first Zinzi Christmas Party in their suburban Washington home as means for friends and family to get together. Each year the party grew and grew and grew, and after a while the ol’ backyard could no longer sustain the large volume of guests.
Over the next decade the Zinzi ball switched locations several times as the attendance exceeded each locations capacity. In 1999, the ball landed at home court which is stills calls home at Grand Hyatt Washington hotel.
