16th Camp Fantastic BBQ Raises Fun(d)s

About 500 NIH'ers showed up on the patio of Bldg. 31A June 9 for the 16th annual Camp Fantastic Barbecue, an R&W event that this year owed virtually its entire success to the generosity of GSI cafeterias, which both sponsored the picnic and donated all of the food. Some $3,000 was raised for the annual summer camp for children with cancer and HIV held each August near Front Royal, Va.
