Celebrating Life - Celebrating Kids
Since 2009, the Foundation has hosted a Night of Magic for critically ill patients receiving care at children’s hospitals throughout the Washington DC metro area.
The Night of Magic is our way of creating a memorable evening so the children and their families can forget about their medical concerns, if only for a few hours. These very special guests often miss out on fun social events like field trips, sporting events, school dances, and sometimes even their proms. Our Night of Magic is a very special evening that has positive, long-lasting effects on the patients as well as their families.
The 2017 Night of Magic was definitely a night to remember! NWFCU Foundation presented a check in the amount of $7,500 – the largest donation the NWFCU Foundation has made to date – to support the Inova Cares Clinic for Children, which provides primary pediatric care for children of low-income families. In addition, the NWFCU Foundation surprised 120 families in attendance at the Night of Magic with a $25 gas card as a way to help alleviate some of the financial strain the families face while their children are going through medical crises.
