Tonight we are reviving GNO - Guests Night Out. It gives the families a break from the hospital and out into the city for a new adventure. Ten guests have signed up for tonight's event, which is dinner at the fabulous Via Tribunali in Georgetown. The Friends of VA Puget Sound Fisher House foot the bill; all the guests have to do is enjoy themselves.
Past events have included a spa night, going to the movies and some very fun dinners. The guests relax in a whole new way, they experience a new neighborhood (often guests are intimidated by Seattle driving so they never even leave the VA campus during their entire stay) and they get to feel pampered. (Don't we all love it when someone else pays for dinner?)
Would you like to help with GNO? We hope to do it monthly and can always use suggestions (and connections) to make this event something special for our deserving families. Send me an email if you have some ideas!
