Honoring Knox Singleton, CEO of Inova, with the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s 2016 Community Leadership Award

Gala2016 295
On October 7, 2016, we joined with 640 friends and community leaders at the McLean Hilton for our annual "Raise the Region" black tie Gala.  We celebrated the catalytic accomplishments of our donor community and honored J. Knox Singleton, CEO of Inova, with the 2016 Community Leadership Award, the most prestigious, longest standing award of its kind in our region. 

Our community raised more than $550,000 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.

The Community Foundation is able to accomplish much, because we have so much help and support from all of you. THANK YOU for caring enough to partner with us and support our important work of helping to respond to need and seed innovation in Northern Virginia.
