Honoring Mark and Brenda Moore with the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s 2017 Community Leadership Award


2017Gala 239
On October 6, 2017, we joined with more than 600 friends and community leaders at the McLean Hilton for our annual "Raise the Region" black tie Gala.  It was an uplifting, fun event that celebrated the Community Foundation’s work, funding partners, and growth, and that also honored the unparalleled philanthropy of Mark and Brenda Moore through the Community Leadership Award, an award that has been given out continuously since 1983 to some of the most influential and generous people in Northern Virginia.

Our community raised more than $530,000 to support the Community Foundation’s work in the region. Hundreds of people contribute to the success of our annual Gala. It is a massive undertaking, made possible only through the heartfelt dedication and hard work of an army of volunteers, donors, staff members, board members, cheerleaders, and Community Foundation friends. The commitment of so many to our mission moves us to action each year and infinitely inspires us.
