Halloween CFC Party Unmasks Heroes for Charity

NIAID volunteers helped to make the 2005 CFC Halloween party a big success.

Dressed as beta carotene, NIAAA's Tanya Blasbalg stands next to the Big 100.3 SUV. The radio station provided the music for the Halloween CFC charity event.

Two dogs from National Capital Therapy Dog, Inc. (CFC #8120) were popular with guests at the party. The group provides free animal-assisted activities, therapy and awareness to acute health care facilities in the Washington and Baltimore areas.

Guests at the party were encouraged to wear costumes. Prepared to do battle in his chain mail, Daniel Gregory is shown with snow fairy Linda Monath and white angel Julie Tran. Gregory won the raffle drawing for an evening with TV’s Dr. Phil.
Representatives from various charities were available to share information about their services with NIH employees. Marita Eddy of Angel Flight (CFC #1228) participated in the Oct. 31 party behind Bldg. 31. Angel Flight is a nonprofit organization that transports patients and their families to medical facilities across the United States.
