The Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce partners with Reston Interfaith to present the annual Best of Reston Awards which recognizes outstanding members of our community who have shown tremendous commitment to improving the lives of others. This long-time collaboration between a business membership organization and social service agency demonstrates the power of community-wide partnerships. This year's gala took place on April 11, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Reston raising a record-breaking $466,000 and through corporate sponsors and individual donations to support of Reston Interfaith's mission to prevent and end homelessness in Fairfax County. Mr. Robert E. Simon, founder of Reston, served as the Honorary Event Chair, and challenged the community to raise $1 million by next year's event scheduled for April 10, 2014—Mr. Simon's 100th birthday. Now in its 24th year, Best of Reston has celebrated hundreds of individuals, organizations and businesses that make Reston an ideal place to live, work, play and serve. Since the first Best of Reston was held in 1992, the partnership has raised over $2.5 million in support of Reston Interfaith's critical services provided to those in need in our community.
