Help Needy Kids by Having Your Gifts Wrapped!

Posted on December 22, 2017 by Avant Property

It’s coming down to the wire! December 25th is almost here. Although you’ve probably finished most of your holiday shopping, you still have to knock out the worst part – gift wrapping.

Let someone else handle this chore – and make a difference in a needy kid’s life. Come out to the holiday gift-wrapping event at the Hyatt Regency Reston on December 24th. Scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the event is being presented by Kids R First, an organization committed to giving children (grades K-12) from families with limited financial means the same opportunities as their peers.

For a small donation, you can have your holiday presents beautifully wrapped, and help outfit local youth with much-needed school supplies. It’s the perfect blend of generosity and convenience!

Ice Skating Season is Here!

Posted on by Avant Property

Although the D.C. area has enjoyed some pretty warm weather lately, that hasn’t stopped the Reston Town Center from kicking off ice skating season in super style. From now until March, the floor of the Pavilion has been transformed into a gleaming ice skating rink. It’s like an indoor winter wonderland, even if the temperature outside is less than bone-rattling chilly!

Rent some skates and enjoy a fun, unique exercise regimen. Have you always wanted to learn to ice skate? Then this is the perfect time to partner with an instructor and tackle that dream! Need ideas for a memorable birthday party, corporate function, or fundraising event? Book the ice skating rink for a cool – literally! – celebration. Or just bring the family out for a day of bonding and building memories.
