A Recipe for Giving

Ashley Appell and Mervin Hernandez, otherwise known as “Sax in the City” performed at the 23rd Annual Congressional Gala to support the Children’s Inn at NIH. The event was a food extravaganza and was called “A Recipe for Giving.”

The duo, accompanied by Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome Network President Donna Appell, represented patients who have benefited from the Children’s Inn and its programs.

The Children’s Inn provides pediatric patients and their families coming to the National Institutes of Health a kid-friendly place to stay if they don’t need to stay in the hospital. Ashley Appell has been staying at the Children’s Inn since she was six years old. Proceeds from the event, held at Union Station in October, are being used to refurbish the kitchen facilities at the Children’s Inn.
