New Leesburg-based charity Crossroads Jobs will host its inaugural fundraising event Thursday, Oct. 19, at Stone Tower Winery.
Crossroads Jobs provides assistance in job searches and placement to unemployed and under-employed Loudoun County residents. For every dollar Crossroads Jobs spends to help a client land a job, the county and surrounding communities benefit by receiving an estimated $100 in increased economic activity.
“We are extremely excited about showcasing Crossroads Jobs with such a fun venue and partner as Stone Tower Winery,” Crossroads Jobs Director Carol Smith stated. “We hope this to be the start of a number of outreach opportunities with potential donors who can assist us in executing our mission to provide individualized job search and placement services to those area residents most in need.”
Proceeds from the Stone Tower Winery fundraising event will support future Crossroad Jobs job placement efforts. The winery is located at 19925 Hogback Mountain Road south of Leesburg.
The event includes wine tastings, food from local eateries, and live music provided by 22 Late, a Loudoun County rock band playing hits from the ’80s to today. Advanced tickets are $40 per person or $70 for a couple and can be purchased at crossroadsjobs.org/fall_fundraiser_2017. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $50 per person or $80 for a couple.
