The Virginia Pond’s annual Christmas Social on December 19 was a great hit and one of our best attended!
By popular request, the event was held at the Virginia War Memorial for the third consecutive year. In addition to great fellowship and holiday cheer, guests enjoyed a catered Italian style buffet with anti-pasta appetizers and a pasta bar complete with three types of sauces, proteins, vegetables, and various toppings. Thanks to Maribelle’s for the delicious fare and service!
As is our holiday tradition, charity was incorporated into the evening by way of a collection and raffle for the USO of Central Virginia. An estimated 3000-5000 troops and family members travel through the Richmond Int’l Airport during the holiday season. Over $700 in cash was donated between prize raffle proceeds and other contributions, on top of the snacks and personal items collected at the event. A special thanks goes to Woody Harrison for making the delivery on behalf of the Pond.
We look forward to more good charity and fellowship in the coming year!
