The event, held on Oct. 30, featured a costume contest, an open air photo booth and food from Hard Times Café, Chick-fil-A and Ben and Jerry’s.

Representatives from various charities were on hand to share information about their services with NIH employees. Among the charities attending were Special Love, L-Dubs Love, Friends of Patients at the NIH, Washington Humane Society, St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth and Families, USO, Generation Hope, Bethesda Cares, NIH Children’s Inn, Foundation for NIH and the Northern Virginia Meditation Service.
