'Washingtonians of the Year' Include 3 With Bethesda Ties


Published:

The CEO of the Children's Inn at NIH, a Bethesda billionaire with some major philanthropic deeds to his name and a former Army psychologist with one of the most successful wounded warrior programs going at Walter Reed were named "Washingtonians of the Year 2012" this month by Washingtonian Magazine. As CEO, Kathy Russell has helped build the Children's Inn, which provides permanent living situations for parents and families of sick children from around the country undergoing treatment at NIH. Bethesda's David Rubenstein, co-founder of the private equity firm The Carlyle Group, was honored for his "philanthropy that unites Washington." Rubenstein recently donated $2 million for a new organ in the Kennedy Center's Concert Hall and $1.5 million to the Library of Congress. Ken Strafer, an Army vet who was injured in an IED blast in 2004, started Project Enduring Pride, which helps wounded veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center get off the base and provides other support activities.
