Generation to Generation Gala

About the Generation to Generation Gala

The Generation to Generation Gala is a festive celebration that highlights generations of family members in our community who exemplify how the dedication and passion for giving back to the community are passed down from generation to generation.

2017 Generation to Generation Gala

SSA’s 2017 Generation to Generation Gala was held on Saturday, March 4th at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center!

This year’s gala honored two Alexandria families for their longstanding commitment to giving back to the local community. We celebrated the service and dedication of Jack Taylor and his son, John Taylor, and the Charity Family, led by patriarch Will Charity (who will be celebrating his 101st birthday in March.)

We were also excited to present our third annual special Service Award this year to Gant and Fran Redmon in recognition of their spirit, commitment to service, and leadership in Alexandria.

To learn more about this year’s honorees and their contributions to the Alexandria community, read the full press release or or watch a video about the Charitys, Taylors, or Redmons. To see photos from the event, check out our Facebook page.
