CFC Embraces Halloween Spirit
Local charities were met by sinister
ghouls, wicked witches with poisonous apples and “Finger Food.” Even Scooby Doo and the Mystery Machine were on hand from Special Love Inc. on Oct. 30 at the Bldg. 31A patio.
Despite the chilly weather, NIH’ers were supportive of CFC efforts once again and braved the wind to meet and learn about new charities, grab a quick lunch and compete for prizes from the R&W Association for Best Costume, Most Creative, Scariest and Best Character. The winners were:
Best Costume: Shirley Flottum “Lunch, Complete with Finger Food.”
Most Creative: Mandy Slutsker “Fannie Mae”; Landsdale Hendersson “Dr. Marty Chalfie, Nobel Prize Winner.”
Scariest: Kenneth Ow “Mr. Hyde”; Robert Jones “Old Man Time.”
Best Character: Judith Spanberger
“Grumpy Old Woman”; Terry Bowers “Fitness Dominatrix.”
The campaign has begun well, with more contributions coming in every week. Everyone should have been visited by their local keyworker by now. This year, the goal for NIH is $2.2 million. With all the competing needs, the CFC needs your contribution now more than ever.
The beauty of CFC is that the choice is yours. You can pick which or how many charities you wish to help either through cash, check or payroll deduction. Contact
your keyworker to contribute now. You can find more photos of the costumes from the event at http://cfc.nih.gov.
