This past Saturday, May 4th, Maga was delighted to partake in one of Washington’s most respected events – the American Red Cross’ Salute to Service Gala. This year marked our first time sponsoring the National Capital Region’s largest fundraising event of the year, but it certainly won’t be the last!
In a celebration intended to honor the longstanding relationship between the Red Cross and men and women of the military, General Raymond T. Odierno, Chief of Staff of the United States Army and wife Linda Odierno received the Lifetime of Service Award — amongst recognition of several other honorees. This component of the event was particularly meaningful for us as we work with heroes such as these on a daily basis and enjoy seeing their achievements recognized.
The funds generated from the evening enable the Red Cross to respond to disasters in both our local community and internationally, when and where the organization’s resources are needed.
One of our designers, Steve, who was on hand to participate in the special night, shared these photos and amazing stories of encounters with Purple Heart recipients.
We hope all you Washingtonians can join us in supporting this important cause next year!
