Last year, the Inaugural WINNter Affair attracted hundreds of young professionals and raised more than $30,000 for The Children’s Inn.  This year’s gala is expected to be another sold-out success. Guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dancing with live music by The Morrison Brothers Band, an award-winning, multi-talented hometown band.

Families come from across the country and around the world to stay together at The Inn – free of charge – no matter how long they need to stay. The Inn’s healing environment cares for the hearts, minds, and souls of some of NIH’s youngest patients.
