Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest family-owned residential real estate company in the United States, and its Reston, Va., offices will serve as this year’s presenting sponsors for the 2016 Capitol Steps performance benefiting Cornerstones. The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 31, at the Hyatt Regency in Reston Town Center.

A nonprofit organization that provides support and advocacy for those in need of affordable housing, quality childcare, food and shelter, Cornerstones works to help its clients become self-sufficient. This year is the 33rd annual Capitol Steps Benefit supporting the organization, and the annual tradition is known as an evening of fun, politically-driven satire. The night also includes drinks and desserts.

“The Capitol Steps Benefit provides critical funding for our programs with last year’s event raising more than $120,000 for our organization,” said Kerrie Wilson, chief executive officer of Cornerstones. “We are very thankful for Long & Foster’s sponsorship of this annual event and for the company’s continued support of our work.”

“We’re thrilled to be participating in such a fun and worthy event again,” said Karen Kidwell, senior vice president and regional manager for Long & Foster’s Northern Virginia and West Virginia region. “Not only does it include an evening of laughs and delicious treats, but it supports a much-needed resource within our own community that has impacted the lives of many people in a positive way.”

Doors for the event open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets start at $75 per person and donations can also be made through the ticketing website here https://restoninterfaith.givezooks.com/events/33rd-annual-capitol-steps-performance/.
