Letter from the Ambassador of the State of Qatar & Department Chair

Dear Friend:

We are very pleased to announce the Georgetown Pediatrics 21st Anniversary Virtual Gala will be on Wednesday, October 21, 2020. It continues to be our pleasure to work closely with some of our dearest and long-standing friends to make this Gala a resounding success. We hope you will be able to join us in what is always one of Washington’s premier events. We would also like to thank all of our friends and sponsors who supported us last year; with your help we raised $540,000 to support Georgetown Pediatrics.

The work of Georgetown Pediatrics is very important to the Washington, DC community. These talented professionals bring a holistic, cura personalis, approach and provide solutions to support healthcare needs for children and families in a “high tech-high touch” manner. Simply put, the dedication of everyone at Georgetown Pediatrics over the years has afforded children and adolescents living in underserved communities free healthcare, nutrition, fitness and school-based programs that our Community Pediatrics and KIDS Mobile Medical team provide. The funds raised by the Pediatrics Gala has given children with special needs access to integrated therapy, counseling opportunities and the support they need at Georgetown Pediatrics. The generosity shown to Georgetown Pediatrics through this Gala has provided a wonderful range of innovative programs and events, such as the Artists in Residence Program, Send a Kid to Camp, and sponsored holiday and birthday parties, making hospital stays easier on children and reducing anxiety that often comes to their families.

These, and numerous other programs – and our children – have benefited greatly from the kindness and generosity of dedicated friends and sponsors who have given so much of their time, energy and financial resources to support the children and families cared for by Georgetown Pediatrics. Collectively over the past 21 years, with your help and steadfast commitment, the Georgetown Pediatrics Gala has raised millions of dollars. The Embassy of the State of Qatar is proud to partner with Georgetown Pediatrics and support all the pediatricians, nurses and staff who are so tirelessly devoted to lifelong wellness. We ask you to join with us to take this highly successful Gala to a new level. Working together, we can make a significant impact on the healthcare and quality of life of our most valuable resource – the children of our community.

We eagerly anticipate your support of the Georgetown Pediatrics Gala.
