Rocking and Rolling for Camp Fantastic
The Affordable Rock ’n Roll Act Band, led by NIH director Dr. Francis Collins, entertained again this year at the annual Camp Fantastic Barbecue, held near the south entrance of the Clinical Center on June 11.
“This year we grossed over $7,000 at the barbecue,” said David Browne, co-president of the NIH Recreation & Welfare Association. “We had our largest turnout with over 1,000 in attendance and our largest donation of auction items at more than 30. R&W is appreciative to everyone who came out to raise funds and awareness for such a great cause and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.”
The event benefits Camp Fantastic, a weeklong experience near Front Royal, Va., for pediatric patients at NIH and other local hospitals.
