The rain couldn't spoil our celebration on Sunday, May 1, 2016
for the 11th Annual Northern Virginia Vision Walk! Over 275 were
in attendance as we celebrated the amazing work of our volunteers.
The day before the Walk we were over $78,000 and on Walk day, it
was annouced that the Lions of District 24 A had raised over $25,000
bringing our total to $103,000 and we are still counting.
