Learn More About the Event


We will kick off the event with networking, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a raffle and silent auction giving guests a chance to bid on exclusive items.

The SMPS DC chapter is excited to continue our relationship with The Children’s Inn at NIH and will be contributing our proceeds from the raffle and silent auction to their cause.

The Children’s Inn at NIH is a residential “place like home” for sick children and their families. Kids come from across the country and around the world to stay together with their families in The Inn’s healing environment while receiving groundbreaking medical treatments at the NIH, the world’s leading biomedical research center. While the NIH takes care of the child’s medical needs, The Inn tends to the child’s heart, soul, and spirit.
