Bethesda Restaurant Hosts Two Fundraisers for Charity That Helps Seriously Ill Children

Silver, the new restaurant in Bethesda, announced it will hold two fundraisers during the month of September for The Children’s Inn at NIH. In honor of September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Silver will donate 15 percent of every breakfast check to The Children’s Inn during the entire month when customers mention The Children’s Inn.

An additional fundraiser is planned for September 21 when Silver will partner with Kendra Scott (jewelry retailer in Bethesda) and Bitches Who Brunch. The public can shop at Kendra Scott between 5 PM and 7 PM on the 21st and a portion of the proceeds will go to The Children’s Inn. Then they can go to Silver for an extended happy hour with $5 happy hour specials and receive two complimentary drinks with a $10 donation to The Children’s Inn.

Silver has been a partner with The Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health since the restaurant opened in September. The Inn is not only regional and national but also international. It was founded to help support the families who have sick children undergoing treatment at NIH. The Inn provides a convenient place with a home-like environment where families can stay together, for free.

The Children’s Inn houses more than 1500 families annually who come from across the country and around the world. Their vision is to strive for the day when no family endures the heartbreak of a seriously ill child. “When families come to The Children’s Inn, they come after experiencing the extremes of heartbreak, hope, and stress as well as all of the other challenges that impact the sick child and the whole family. But when they walk through the doors of The Inn, they become a family caring for a child with a serious illness who now has a host of caring partners and advocates,” explained Jennie Lucca, CEO of The Children’s Inn at NIH. So much of the stress that goes along with caring for a seriously ill child is lifted by being able to stay at The Inn where siblings can be close to their brother or sister and can continue to interact as a family unit.

Silver opened in September with a unique concept that has been described as “diner meets brasserie” - fresh and creative. The interior design is inspired by the elegant dining Pullman train cars and art deco brasseries of the 1920s. The restaurant is the creation of the two partners who developed the very successful Silver Diner - Robert Giaimo and Ype Von Hengst. Von Hengst also serves as the executive chef of Silver. “We are delighted to be able to help The Children’s Inn,” said Giaimo. “It’s a very worthy and much deserving cause.”

Silver is located at 7150 Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night. For more information, visit
