Aleethia’s “Friday Night Dinner” for August 1, 2014 was sponsored by donations received in honor of Jim Mayer’s 45th Alive Day

Jim and Hal Koster began the dinners in October 2003 to give the wounded/injured service members recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center a night away from the hospital. These dinners are an integral part of the healing process. A celebration of Jim’s Alive Day is held each April and Jim asked his guests to make a voluntary donation to support the Aleethia’s “Friday Night Dinners.”

Over 20 wounded/injured/ill service members, plus their families and guests enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner at La Panetteria in Bethesda.

We had a wonderful evening with honoring Jim, an anniversary and two birthdays. We had the bittersweet experience of saying goodbye to two friends who have moved on in their healing process and will be happy to return home.

Wouldn’t be a “Friday Night Dinner” without our “little guests!”

Thanks to Jim and his wonderful friends for an awesome time!
