The event was a wine and cheese fundraiser held at the company’s facility located at 9700 Great Seneca Highway in Rockville, MD. In addition to monetary donations, the event also sought to raise awareness of the critical unmet medical needs and lack of a charitable organization that funds clinical drug development in infants. Members from the local business, professional, and residential community were invited.
