Shortly thereafter, she chaired three events--The Pioneer Festival Fun Run, The Mad Hatters Tea Party and 'Tis the Season--to benefit The Foundation for Medically Fragile Children (children whose complex medical conditions require professional monitoring and supervision on a 24-hour basis to prevent life-threatening complications, prevent deterioration of health status, and/or maintain health status, often requiring financial assistance beyond insurance).

As a member of the Women's Committee of the Corcoran Gallery of Art (and an Executive Committee member for seven years), she chaired the Public Education and Outreach Committee, planned the Corcoran Annual Family Day, and also chaired the 2011 Corcoran Ball.
