Theme: Building a Community that Works for Everyone

The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia’s annual Gala has been described as a “homecoming” – an elegant, uplifting event that brings together more than 600 business, community and philanthropic leaders to raise funds to support its work to respond to need and seed innovation in the region.
At this event, Major General Carl H. McNair, Jr. (Retired), will receive the Community Leadership Award for outstanding service and commitment to Northern Virginia, the longest standing award of its kind in this region. General McNair served in the US Army for more than 32 years followed by a career in the private sector of similar length while remaining active in community affairs throughout the region – serving on multiple boards and championing local nonprofit organizations that support military families and veterans. The US Military Academy named him a Distinguished Graduate of West Point in 2011, an honor accorded fewer than 100 graduates to that date, and in 2015, he was selected as the 89th “Living Legend of Aviation.”

The event will be on Friday, October 4, 2019 at the McLean Hilton in Tysons Corner, Virginia from 6:30 – 10:30 pm.

Dress is Black Tie Attire.

Sponsorships are available from $1,000 to $30,000 and include visibility throughout the year and at the Gala, and tickets to the event. Individual tickets are $300.
