A Fundraiser Close to Our Hearts

Reston Limousine CEO & President Kristina Bouweiri has generously donated to hundreds of fundraisers throughout the metro DC area over the years, and is now involved in one that is close to her heart: a FUNraiser for Daniela Joel, her niece.

Daniela was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glyoma on Thanksgiving Day 2008, a few months before her 13th birthday. Daniela’s dad died of a massive heart attack on the tennis court five years ago. The fundraiser is aimed at raising money for her mother, Bernadine,   who is unable to work and living on donations because she cares for her daughter around the clock.
