Last Year: FRIENDS’ NIGHT OUT Celebration – 2018

Thank you to sponsors, guests and the band!

Sandeep Somaiya, Board Member and Platinum Sponsor from NET eSolutions, introduced NIH Director Francis Collins.

Dr. Collins thanked Friends at NIH for its critical support to patients and families and noted it’s been quite a journey since the first gala in a car dealership to this evening’s celebration with NIH’s own 14-member Affordable Rock ‘N’ Roll Act band.
