A little about The Children’s Inn at NIH...
It's a non-profit “Place Like Home” on the campus of NIH in Bethesda, MD. The Inn’s mission is to facilitate research at the world’s leading biomedical research center while offering families comfort and support. AFCEA Bethesda’s Children’s Inn Gala has raised more than $4.1 million since its inception in 1999.
“The Inn continuously operates – 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year – to serve the emotional and spiritual needs of children and their families at no cost to families, “ said Robert Guerra, chair of The Children's Inn Gala. “In these difficult economic times, this Gala has become the Inn’s single largest fundraiser; therefore, the Gala’s contributions are absolutely essential for the Inn’s continuing ability to serve these children and their families in the future.“
