Marine Moms-Bethesda’s Annual Quilt Raffle begins May 1, 2015. 

This is our only fundraiser. 

100% of the funds raised from this raffle support the monthly luncheons at Walter Reed NMMC our all-volunteer teams provide free to patients and their families on the Surgical Ward and the Traumatic Brain Injury Ward, and combat families with loved ones on the Critical Care Unit.

Here’s the lowdown…

Marine Moms-Bethesda serves ALL service branches.  The patients we serve may be ill, injured, combat-wounded, combat patients who’ve been re-admitted from out-patient status to in-patient status for follow-up surgeries, active duty military patients not combat-related, Veterans or their dependents, and their family members so far from home to be at the bedside of their loved one.
