Thank you to BENEFIT Loudoun Music Festival and the Village at Leesburg

A big thank you to the organizers of the BENEFIT Loudoun Music Festival and the Village at Leesburg for raising awareness and support of Loudoun’s nonprofits last Saturday. INMED’s Family & Youth Opportunity Center sponsored the temporary tattoo tent, which was popular with kids and adults of all ages. Christine Kopp was the lucky winner of INMED’s raffle prize—an Amazon Echo Show touchscreen! Our friend and Barn Blast entertainer extraordinaire, Juliana MacDowell, was among the top local musicians who donated their time and talent to help the nonprofit community and the people we serve. Thanks also to the bands drumfish, HalfKing Emerging Artists, Big Bad Juju, Frayed Knots and singer Todd Wright. And thank you to all the amazing teen volunteers who turned out to make the event a smooth-running machine!

We’re narrowing the learning and opportunity gap for low-income children in Loudoun County.

We’re narrowing the learning and opportunity gap for low-income children in Loudoun County. “Our main purpose for enhancing the current roster of educational programs is to create an exciting environment that will inspire our program participants to excel and succeed at their life goals,” says Executive Director Cecilia Capece. “We’re using all our academic resources to encourage children to explore their options and act on opportunities that might not have been possible elsewhere.” The top three after-school students who demonstrate grade improvement, have read the most books for their grade level, or produce the greatest number of book reports will be rewarded with one of three prizes featured in the library (a telescope, a Kindle or microscope).

Sterling Library Branch Manager Katherine Kalil Visits INMED

Sterling Library Branch Manager Katherine Kalil stopped by to check out our new reading and research library. Sterling Library is another one of our faithful community partners, bringing its mobile library to our summer camps in June and July and to our after-school program throughout the school year. Katie also serves on our Program Advisory Board, which meets quarterly to support not only INMED’s programs but other nonprofits in our community.

BENEFIT Loudoun Community Outreach Event

INMED Partnerships for Children was one of 18 non-profits represented at last Saturday’s BENEFIT Loudoun community outreach event to raise awareness and support for Loudoun’s nonprofit community.  Event-goers purchased and donated BENEFIT Bucks as onsite currency throughout the event to support their favorite charities. Each non-profit organization offered an array of raffle prizes to generate interest at their individual tents, build awareness about their organizations, and generate potential donations for their various program services. Christine Kopp was the lucky winner of INMED’s ECHO Show Touchscreen raffle drawing. INMED also sponsored the Youth Activity Tent, which offered a very cool temporary guitar tattoo that was popular with event goers of all ages. The exceptional live entertainment organized and delivered by established and emerging musicians at this event is the driving force that continues to build momentum and support for this impressive annual community outreach event.
