On February 4, Arlington Pediatric Center celebrated Mardi Gras at our 7th annual benefit held at Washington Golf and Country Club. The event raised $120,000 for patient programs and services. Rebecca Burton of RB Video Productions and Julia Avent of RE/MAX Allegiance served as event co-chairs. More than 275 guests attended and our evening entertainment included auctioneer Philip Simonides of ING Financial Partners and music by Mike Flaherty’s Dixieland Direct Jazz Band. We are grateful to our host committee and sponsors for making this special night a success.
