NWFCU Foundation’s Superheroes Offer Critically Ill Children a Night of Magic

HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–More than 130 people—critically ill children and their families—attended
the Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation’s 7th annual Night
of
Magic event on July 8th, 2016. The children receive
care at INOVA Children’s Hospital in Fairfax, Va., and the annual event
is a chance for them to enjoy music, food, and games in a party
atmosphere. This year’s event was superhero-themed, giving the children
the chance to dress in costume and interact with volunteers dressed as
their favorite characters. During the event, Northwest Federal Credit
Union’s President and CEO, Chris McDonald, presented a $5,000 donation
to the hospital’s Child Life Services, a program dedicated to easing
children’s anxiety during hospital stays.


“The Night of Magic is special to everyone in the Foundation and
Northwest Federal,” said McDonald. “Our 48 volunteers worked tirelessly
to make it an event these deserving children will never forget, and our
generous sponsors gave of their time, talent, and resources with the
sole hope of making a difference in the lives the children, their
families, and Child Life Services at INOVA Fairfax.”
