The Best of Reston is a collaboration between the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce and Cornerstones (formerly Reston Interfaith) to honor businesses, organizations, and individuals who have put forth excellent effort toward service in the community.
There are five award categories: Individual Community Member, Civic/Community Organization, Small Business Leader (2 – 100 employees), Corporate Business Leader (101+ employees), and the Vade Bolton-Ann Rodriguez Young Leaders — Entrusting Our Community’s Future Award.
The 23rd annual award ceremony is being co-chaired by Robert E. Simon, Reston’s founder who will celebrate his 100th birthday in April. The 2014 awards mark several important milestones — Simon’s 100th birthday, Reston’s 50th anniversary and the Best of Reston campaign goal of helping Cornerstones double its stock of affordable housing in the area.
The Best of Reston Awards Gala will be held on April 10 at the Hyatt Regency Reston. Proceeds from Best of Reston support Cornerstones’ affordable housing initiatives.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
