Leesburg, VA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
On April 20, Lawrence Stanley, President and Founder of the The Cap-X Group, and members of The Future Fund, the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia's young professionals giving circle, hosted the 2012 FUTURE FUND AWARDS GALA: A NIGHT TO PLAY IT FORWARD at the Westin Gateway in Arlington. The House Inc., and Liberty's Promise, two nonprofits working in the field of Child and Youth Development, were awarded with grants of $25,000 each. “These children represent our future leaders,” noted Stanley, ‘As we continue to raise money and support this worthy cause, they too will absorb the value of giving,” remarked Stanley. “The Future Fund has more than broken the surface, and I too am looking forward to extending this worthy cause throughout my professional network and beyond” Noted Stanley. More than 300 guests danced the night away on a colorful LED dance floor, accompanied by light hors d'oeuvres and colorful desserts compliments of Georgetown Cupcake! Games were spread throughout the venue, and a silent auction of vacation getaways, sports tickets, theater tickets, and experiences help support 2012-2013 Future Fund grant-making.
