The awards honor Reston individuals and businesses for their commitment to community service.
See the list of this year’s honorees in this previous Reston Now article.
The gala is also a large fundraiser for Cornerstones, the Reston nonprofit that helps people in need find affordable housing, food and other necessities. This year’s gala has a goal of raising $500,000, says Cornerstones.
That’s similar to the amount raised each of the last two years, says Cornerstones chair Jill Norcross. Two years ago, Cornerstones was able to double its stock of affordable housing with money raised.
Tickets to the gala start at $200 (includes dinner) and can be purchased online.
