Reston Limousine is not only doing its part to drive the economy back to health, but to giving back to the community by supporting regional charitable and nonprofit organizations.
One recent example is Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation’s upcoming “Night of Magicâ€ at the Childrenâ€™s National Medical Center in Washington DC on June 12. The foundation is working with the hospital to provide a night to remember for young patients who otherwise would be missing such memorable occasions. As part of the formal ball, the children will be given royal treatment — from complimentary party attire to hair and makeup artists to goody bags!
And since no ball is complete without a magical carriage, Reston Limousine will be providing one of its own buses for the event — a service valued at $1,300 — to transport the young guests to and from their special event.
If you would like to join Reston Limousine in supporting this wonderful cause, NWFCU Foundation is collecting party finery for toddlers to 21-year-olds, accessories, goody bag treats and other donations. For more information, visit the Foundation’s Web site.
Later in the summer, Reston Limousine will once again be joining The Right LANEs (Ladies Advancing a New Economy) Excursion as a sponsor for the day-long outing designed as a small-scale stimulus package. The inaugural excursion took place in May, when Reston Limousine transported a group of 25 women from Herndon to Charlottesville for a day of dining, shopping, wine tasting and general pampering.
For the upcoming Aug. 29 excursion, Reston Limousine will be providing a bus for another group from Charlottesville or Virginia Beach to Herndon just in time for a back-to-school buying binge.
These and other philanthropic efforts are part of Reston Limousine’s proud legacy of community outreach, which provides services and support to many charitable and not-for-profit organizations. Last year Reston Limousine donated $310,000 in services and cash to worthy causes in the metropolitan area. Since its inception, the company has donated more than $1 million in cash and gifts-in-kind.
In recognition of these efforts, CEO Kristina Bouweiri recently was honored as a finalist in Washington Business Journal’s Philanthropy Awards. Besides the donation by company staff of more than 400 hours of community service to charitable organizations, Bouweiri was honored for her endorsement of an initiative to provide transportation to the disadvantaged for health care visits, according to WBJ.
