Join us at the Road to Independence Gala on Friday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. to celebrate the incredible journeys of the families you’ve helped become stable and self-sufficient, and to honor 2016 community award winners J. Hamilton Lambert and Karen Schaufeld. The evening starts with a silent auction, drinks bar and networking, followed by dinner, client testimonials and awards. We hope to be able to thank you for your support at this festive evening.
That same weekend, NVFS’ group of Certified Application Counselors (CACs) — who help their uninsured neighbors navigate the process of obtaining an optimal plan under the Affordable Care Act — enjoyed a small, special appreciation event. They were thrilled when U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly stopped by to offer his personal thanks and support for their work. Thank you, CACs!
