Christine & Rokas Beresniovas
It was a little speakeasy; a little Roaring Twenties on Saturday evening as One Lounge opened its doors for a DC Air Society event benefiting the Kunsberg School for chronically ill children on the campus of National Jewish Health®.
Guests including the GBA’s Rokas Beresniovas and his wife, Christine, donned Fedoras, feather boas and beads taking over the club in Dupont for a worthy cause. Although none had to whisper the immortal “Joe sent me…” to gain entrance, invited guests spent the evening enjoying cocktails, dancing and some light bites.
The AIR Society was founded in 1991 when a group of young
professionals with the common tie of having loved ones came together because some of them or their family members that have had been treated for asthma, allergies and/or immune system disorders at National Jewish Health. The AIR Society expanded from New York to include a group in Denver in 2001 and now has added this chapter in Washington, DC, which held its inaugural event in May 2010. Since its inception more than $2.5 million has been raised for this cause.National Jewish Health For more than 110 years, National Jewish Health has been at the forefront of research and medicine, integrating the latest scientific discoveries with coordinated care for lung, heart and immune diseases.
