Café Deluxe is our newest partner to help support patients and families. The restaurant located at 4910 Elm Street in Bethesda, near the NIH, is owned by Chef Geoff (Geoffrey Tracy) and Brian Sullivan. Café Deluxe provides discounted dinners to patients’ families through Friends’ special program, Ana’s Impact, established in memory of Ana Longenderfer Dougherty.

Café Deluxe’s General Manager, Patty Hunt, lost her Dad to a stroke and a friend to cancer at an early age. She says “food makes people smile. And if we can help put a smile on someone’s face who is fighting illness, I’m happy and my staff is happy.”
