Jobs Placement Nonprofit Hosts Oct. 19 Fundraiser

​            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.
