Raises Funds to Support Local Critical Needs

J. Hamilton Lambert, former Fairfax County Executive and current Executive Director of the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, was honored with the 2013 Community Leadership award for his visionary leadership in the Northern Virginia region.  The award was presented at the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s 2013 Sweet Home Virginia Gala on October 25, 2013 at the Sheraton Premiere in Tysons Corner, Virginia.

Former Virginia Congressman, Tom Davis, presented Lambert with the award.  He was one of many community leaders featured in a tribute video who all recognized that Lambert had not received the credit he deserved for his work in the development of Fairfax County.  Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Sharon Bulova, was also present to honor Lambert with this award.

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s annual Sweet Home Virginia Gala hosts over 600 philanthropic, business, and community leaders to celebrate the charitable work done by the Community Foundation and to raise funds – over $440,000 this year - to support the Foundation’s ongoing work in areas of critical need.
