new & noteworthy Help PMPI Give Back Get involved with our charity of the year! by Katie Hais, American Hotel & Lodging Association Co-Chair, Community Outreach Committee PMPI’s Community Outreach Committee (COC) is excited to announce that The Children’s Inn at NIH is our 2010/2011 charity of the year. Located in Bethesda, Maryland, on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), The Children’s Inn is a private, non-profit residence for pediatric patients and their families. Their goal is to create a healthy, happy and nurturing environment that families can call home while a loved one undergoes medical treatment. We look forward to many ways in which we can support and contribute to this wonderful charity that has been part of our community since 1990. Here’s how you can help: During Monster’s Bash on October 28, the COC will collect items to help stock the pantry at The Children’s Inn. Please provide nonperishable items such as canned fruits and vegetables, soups, individual boxes of cereal, rice and kids’ snack items (fruit snacks, granola bars). New kitchen supplies such as spoons, spatulas, mixing bowls and pots and pans are also needed. The learning experience on November 17 will start our annual angel tree gift collection benefiting our charity of the year. This is a great opportunity to provide a small gift that will make a big impact on a child’s life. Be sure to sign up to make a donation during the LE event. As always, the COC will run its 50/50 raffle during PMPI events. Watch for us in our green aprons and remember that every dollar donated goes to a great cause! For more information on the COC or The Children’s Inn, please contact committee co-chairs Laura Finn Gardner at (202) 789-7063 or Katie Hais at (202) 289-3114. Also, you can find more information at our respective websites: Children’s Inn, www.childrensinn.org; PMPI, www.pmpi.org. Beyond the beauty of North Lake Tahoe are the brains: the venues, personnel and infrastructure that make getting down to business as pleasant as escaping it. It’s a rare balance of mother nature and human nature that makes for one very productive gathering that won’t soon be forgotten. n is for north TripAdvisor Orbitz.com! 480353_North.indd 1 PMPI POTOMAC MEMO S E P T E M B E R / O C T O B E R 2 0 1 0 V O L .6/9/10 N O . 1 PM 9 3 2 , 9:29:05 1 http://www.childrensinn.org http://www.pmpi.org http://www.gotahoenorth.com
