Arlington, VA (October 18, 2011) – Just up the road in Rosslyn, friends and supporters of Gabrielle Fronce‘s organization, “Purple Bunny Project,” proudly walked into Cafe Asia wigged and ready to party on Saturday, October 8th. The Purple Bunny Project Second Annual Wig Night hosted over 200 people. After the event, the party collected over $2100, and a total of $3700 including their online fundraising page.
Gabrielle’s Project benefited the Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health. She chose this group because of her four-year-old niece, Sophia Faith Brooks, who past away last October. The Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health is a residential “place like home” for sick children and their families. Children come from across the country and around the world to stay together with their families in The Inn’s healing environment while receiving groundbreaking medical treatments at the NIH, the world’s leading biomedical research center. While the NIH takes care of the child’s medical needs, The Inn tends to the child’s heart, soul and spirit.
