First “Family Dinner”

In April we held our first “Family Dinner” at Inova Children’s Hospital in Falls Church Virginia. The dinner was catered by Paisano’s. They provided some delicious food that the patients, families and nurses enjoyed. The feedback from the parents was very positive and we are looking forward to our second dinner, which will be May 18th. Please consider supporting Paisano’s, if you are in the delivery area.
