ALEXANDRIA, VA – ACT for Alexandria’s “Fall Salud and Virtual Celebration” is fast-approaching. It takes place Wednesday, September 23 from 7-8 p.m.

This highly-anticipated event is expected to be an evening when the best of Alexandria – the community, the friendships, the supportive spirit – is on full display. while this year, attendees are not able to gather in person, the virtual celebration still promises to be a night for socializing, entertainment, and the opportunity to celebrate the efforts of ACT and the community as they have helped each other during the pandemic.

“ACT depends on the success this fall event,” said Heather Peeler, ACT’s President and CEO.
“This year has brought many challenges to our community and our country, and ACT has been
there as a steadfast leader to support our neighbors in need.”

Unique to this event, all guests will receive a “Cheers in a Box,” full of local goodies and perfect party necessities.

There will be an engaging virtual platform and a program full of treats, including musical performances by local favorite singer-songwriter Luke James Shaffer and Billboard-charting violinist Chelsey Green.

A successful event will give ACT the security and flexibility to respond to emerging and changing community needs, champion causes like racial equity, empower local nonprofits by providing resources and capacity building grants. It also means that for every dollar ACT brings in, $4 can be given back to the community.

Residents can support ACT by purchasing a ticket for the event HERE. Sales close September 14.
