RESTON, VA, April 7, 2017 – CST Group is excited and honored to have won the prestigious 2017 Best of Reston award in the Small Business category for our community service in the greater Reston/Dulles Corridor region.
The Cornerstones of Our Community – Best of Reston Awards, an annual gala and networking event now in its 26th year, is a unique partnership between the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce and Cornerstones, honoring those who have demonstrated significant contributions to the region through their philanthropy and volunteerism.
This award reflects CST Group partner Mark Watts’ extremely successful work in educating and encouraging charitably minded individuals to participate in the Neighborhood Assistance Tax Credit Program (NAP). Through this program, donors receive a state tax credit in addition to the charitable tax deduction when directing their contribution directly to Cornerstones. The NAP program has sent more than $800,000 to Cornerstones over the past two years largely due to Mark’s efforts – an amazing accomplishment.
“Many of those who voted for the award told me that CST Group’s involvement–especially our recent efforts–in giving back to the community through our many individual and group works of good deeds, was critical to winning the award,” stated Joe Romagnoli, managing partner, CST Group. “I am extremely proud of our employees for helping define and maintain this very important element of our corporate culture.”
