Road to Independence Gala
Friday, May 12, 2017
Hilton McLean Tysons Corner
The 2017 Road to Independence Gala is a celebration of the incredible journeys of local families and of the individuals, civic groups and companies who are helping to strengthen the Northern Virginia community. We are thrilled to be honoring Frank Wolf with the Legend of Northern Virginia award and Karen Cleveland as our Community Champion. Both have made a profound impact on our region, and we hope you will join us in recognizing them.
Thank you to all of our guests, donors and sponsors for making the 2016 Road to Independence Gala such a wonderful evening (see photos here). At the 2016 Gala, we honored two remarkable individuals in our community: J. Hamilton Lambert and Karen Schaufeld. And thanks to your incredible support, we raised more than $730,000 to help the vulnerable families of Northern Virginia find their road to independence and self-sufficiency through NVFS' continuum of programs.
Glenda represents one such family. Watch here to find out more about the impact of NVFS in individual lives and in the Northern Virginia community.
The Road to Independence Gala provides a festive and elegant setting for community and business leaders and supporters to celebrate NVFS' impact on families and children in need. It also recognizes the generous donors and supporters who are dedicated to giving back to the community in which they live and who make our services possible.
