The VWR Foundation hosts its annual auction during VWR International, LLC's North American Sales Meeting as a way to give back to the meeting's host city.  This year, the Foundation chose Children's National Medical Center for its natural fit with all three pillars in the VWR Foundation's mission: research, health and well-being and science education.  A check for $75,000 was presented to Children's National on January 17, 2012.

In addition to fundraising, auction attendees donated over 1,000 books for both patients and their parents to enjoy during hospital visits.  The book drive was organized by VWR International, LLC's Women's Affinity Group.

"We are so grateful to the VWR Foundation and everyone who participated in this incredibly successful auction," said Pam King Sams, Executive Vice President for Development for Children's National. "These funds will support important research and care for so many children in the nation's capital, and help make their stay with us more comfortable."
