THE COMMUNITY: Children's Inn benefit

The public and private IT sectors got together early this month at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington for 'A Night for the Children,' the ACFEA Bethesda Chapter's annual benefit for Children's Inn. The event, chaired this year by Joanne Connelly, president of ConnellyWorks Inc., and HHS CIO Charles Havekost, raised money for the inn, which houses children being treated at NIH, and their families. Above, left to right, Lt. Gen. Charles Croom of DISA, Don Scott and Debbie Dowling of EDS Corp., Gayle Croom of the Library of Congress, Jerry Harrison of General Dynamics C4 Systems and Von Harrison of GSA take in the scene.
