Thank you Golfers for making our 15th annual golf tournament a success!

Hello Golfers, Sponsors, Volunteers and Friends.
A wonderful day was had by all at Friends at NIH’s 15th annual golf tournament. The sold out event was held at beautiful Manor country club in Rockville, Maryland.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, players, special guest speakers, and volunteers for helping make this year’s event our most successful ever!
The $73,000 raised that day will go a long way to support our patient programs throughout the year.

Please enjoy the wonderful foursome photos and candid highlights.
