Cornerstones of our Community: 50th Anniversary Celebration
Thursday, September 30, 2021
On September 30, 2021* we invite you to join Cornerstones for a fun and inspirational evening, in-person and virtual, at The Barns at Wolf Trap, honoring the many diverse leaders and partners who helped shape our work and success over the past 50 years.
By combining key elements from our well-known Best of Reston Community Service Awards, the 50th Anniversary Celebration will bring together hundreds of community and business partners, faith leaders, nonprofit allies, advocates, and past event honorees and attendees. We will celebrate our community’s milestones and plans to help rebuild the economic health, stability, and vibrancy of Northern Virginia.
Setting the Stage for Cornerstones' Next 50 Years
No one predicted what 2020 would mean for us as individuals, as a community, or as a society. During the economic downturn and ongoing pandemic, it is clear our work is needed now more than ever. It will take all of us working together to rebuild our community and ensure that everyone in Northern Virginia can fully participate and prosper.
That’s why Cornerstones’ 50th anniversary keynote speaker will be an important voice in setting the tone for both the celebration and the next phase of our critical work. Our plan is to secure a nationally renowned leader, author, or philanthropist — one who champions the importance of human services and equity, who will challenge our thinking, and inspire us to create meaningful, enduring, and equitable change that will benefit our entire community.
*We are currently planning a dual limited in-person and virtual event in September, based on CDC guidelines and recommendations
