Friends of Patients at the NIH & Special Love

Join us — as individuals or corporate volunteers —
in the two weeks leading up to Christmas at our Holiday Gift Wrap Center at Westfield Montgomery Mall for a fun and meaningful time!

Wonderful team building and sponsorship opportunity!

If you need a refresher course on how to wrap, we’ll show you a short video demonstration.

Come join the fun and make this holiday a meaningful one for patients and their families in treatment trials at the National Institute of Health.

FRIENDS’ NIGHT OUT Celebration – 2019

Thank you to sponsors, guests and the band!

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

Special thank you to our Event Sponsors – Race for RP/RP Foundation for their support and friendship.


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.
