Federal IT community supports Children's Inn

The federal IT community raised what could fairly be described as a ton of money for the Children's Inn at the annual gala held April 14. Children's Inn is a residential facility for sick children and their families to stay in while receiving experimental treatments at the National Institutes of Health.

"Great day today," wrote Robert Guerra on Facebook early on the morning of May 24. "At 7:30, we will present the CEO of the Children's Inn with a check for $838,000 as a result of our Gala of April 14th. Great to help those thousands of children and families at their home away from home. Thanks to all for their incredible generosity."

AFCEA's Bethesda chapter hosts the annual gala for the Inn, and Guerra, a consultant and partner at Guerra, Kiviat, is chairman for the gala.

(It's actually only almost a ton. Based on some research that revealed the weight of a dollar bill is 1 gram, we calculated that 838,000 $1 bills would weigh 1,846 pounds ... just shy of a ton.)
