National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) held its 2nd Annual Last Vegas Nights Benefit on Feb. 18 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts with Carole Randolph and Karin DeFrancis co-chairing. Guests were met by plumed showgirls and could fortify themselves with a “black martini” before heading to the gaming tables with a special guest appearance by Texas Hold’em Champion Mary Jones. Mike Walter emceed the evening. Goodie bags included something for everyone—NRH playing cards, Baileys Irish Cream and Eucerin skin therapy. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, NRH is a private, not-for-profit facility in NW Washington and a proud member of MedStar Health. The benefit raised funds for the hospital’s various patient disability programs including brain and spinal chord injuries and stroke.
