The informal fundraiser netted more than $750. A giant check for $45,000 is presented to Special Love-Camp Fantastic, the Friends of the Clinical Center and the R&W Foundation by Jack Hanson (l), representing General Electric's Elfun Society, which helped R&W sponsor the Jeff Bostic Celebrity Golf Tournament last spring. Bostic (second from l), former Redskin center, waves a cowboy hat to the crowd along with CC director Dr. John Gallin (second from r) and Randy Schools, R&W general manager.
