MOUNT VERNON SQUARE -- Children's National Health System mascot Dr. Bear has some serious dance moves.

And the much beloved character wasn't shy about showing them off on Saturday evening, during the 8th annual Dancing After Dark benefit held inside the soaring walls of historic Carnegie Library.

Hosted by the Junior Council of Children's National, the signature annual celebration raised more than $165,000 in 2015 (a 15% increase over last year's event).

More than 570 guests donned their finest festive cocktail attire for the occasion, which boasted a perfect program mix of cocktails, dessert, and dancing.

The money raised from the rapidly growing event supports the doctors and nurses at Children's National, who provide the most sophisticated, personalized, and compassionate care possible to every patient who walks through the door, regardless of whether or not they have insurance.

Beyond ticket sales and sponsorships, Dancing After Dark leverages the generosity of supporting businesses through a variety of silent auction items. This year's items drew $5,410 in bids from guests.

Just one more reason for Dr. Bear to pop and lock.
