Congratulations to the CHARACTER COUNTS! Coalition in Reston, Virginia, for raising a cool $5,697 as part of opening weekend sales at a local ice skating rink.
“We’re elated that Reston Town Center Ice Skating Pavilion was able to raise such a large donation for us this year,” said Reston Association CEO Cate Fulkerson, who also serves as president of Reston CHARACTER COUNTS! Coalition.
The Town Center donates 50 percent of the Ice Skating Pavilion’s opening weekend proceeds.
Fulkerson said that her organization will use the funds to support such projects as Ethics Day at a local high school, the Reston Kids Triathlon, the Cornerstones Best of Reston event, and other initiatives to support character-building among the youth of the community.
