AFCEA chapter steps out for NIH charity

The Bethesda, Md., chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association is known for events such as informational breakfasts and other programs that address ongoing federal information technology issues.

The chapter's members recently put their organizational skills to another good use, raising $233,000 to benefit the Children's Inn at the National Institutes of Health.

The AFCEA Bethesda Chapter's Third Annual Charity Ball, held at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, drew more than 30 corporate, organizational and individual sponsors and sold out its tickets well in advance of the event.

Chapter president Linda Berdine said that, after expenses, AFCEA would donate $150,000 to Children's Inn, which is supported solely by fund-raising efforts.
