Celebrating 10 Good Things

June 01, 2017

Each summer, CNE brings together nonprofits, businesses, community leaders, friends, and family to celebrate the dynamic people and organizations that knit our community together. Thanks to all of you, last evening we enjoyed our best Celebration of Strong Nonprofits yet. (And the rain couldn’t stop us this year, either!)

To close out our 10th Anniversary, we had a special theme – a celebration of 10 Good Things in our community.

With so many of you showing up and sharing your Good Thing stories and ways to get involved and engaged, you helped us do just that. We loved seeing the connections made and the 10 Good Things boards bursting with your ideas about ways to get involved, now, in the community. We’ll be sharing your get involved ideas next with all those who attended and anyone else who’s interested.

And while it was a “party with a purpose” – party we did! We enjoyed food, drink, good company, and a touch of carnival. And most importantly, we enjoyed getting to know so many of you just a little bit better. Here’s to all the good.

A special thank you to our 10 Good Things Ambassadors for the evening, as well as the IX Art Park, DuCard Vineyards, Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co of Central Virginia, and Travinia Italian Kitchen for supplying us with a moveable community feast. Photo credit Parker Sturtevant.
