The 19th annual "Vintage Affair" event, sponsored by the Board of Visitors on May 7, raised $925,000. More than 550 attendees were treated to an evening of exquisite wines paired with inspired cuisine, and a live and silent auction showcasing rare wines, exotic trips, and one-of-a-kind dining experiences. The event was chaired by Beth and Fred Singer and Anjali and Arun Gupta. View photos.
The funds raised this year's event will help establish a breakthrough Neuroimmunology Program at Children’s National. This program will find new tools and solutions to precisely diagnose neuroimmune conditions, anticipate how the disorders will unfold in patients, and safely treat children’s growing bodies and brains.
At the event, Kathy Gorman, MSN, RN, Executive Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Operating Officer, said the Board of Visitors has had a tremendous impact on children, families, and every area of Children's National. “The Board of Visitors is one of the groups the hospital relies on to help fund both the big ideas and the everyday operational expenses," she said. "The fundraising that is done through A Vintage Affair has allowed us to recruit and retain top doctors, invest in state-of-the-art medical equipment and research, and provide exceptional, child-centered care."
