"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give".
Sir Winston Churchill
I am thankful and honored to have been invited by the faculty and staff of the Department of Pediatrics at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital for their annual Friends and Sponsor Dinner at The Four Seasons Hotel in Washington DC. It's a terrific event thanking those who make Georgetown Pediatrics a premier hospital to take care of ill children and their families.
Those honored tonight give back to Georgetown through countless hours of volunteering at the medical student run clinic, corporate donations and the founder of the NICU Parent Advisory Board, Tracy Key, who has raised thousands of dollars to help others with premature babies.
My photo is me and Pat Scully, President of the Southern Comforters Quilt Guild of Bowie, Maryland. Pat has single handedly made many "dinosaur" quilts for many of Georgetown's Pediatric Oncology Patients. I would like to thank her and the rest of our guild (community quilts) for all the quilts made for the many pediatric patients through the years!!! Bravo!
BSoleille! The bright side of "giving back".
