PHILLIPS Program for Children and Families, the Fairfax based non profit has been serving the community for nearly 50 years. On April 29 they held their 22nd annual spring gala. The gala is the organization’s biggest fund raising event and this year’s theme was Great Gatsby: A Roaring Good Time for a Swell Cause. The ballroom of the Hilton McLean was filled with costumed people enjoying the sounds of jazz bands while sipping signature drinks as they bid on prizes to benefit the programs the charity provides.
PHILLIPS has helped hundreds of families with learning and emotional challenges providing them with educational support and workforce training. They offer counseling and therapy sessions helping improve educational and home environments. A great time for a great cause!
