Holiday Kick Off in Town Center "Jingle All The Way!"

The Brambleton Group kicked off the holiday season in the Town Center on Saturday, November 28th with the first annual Jingle Bell Family Fun Run/Walk followed by an afternoon of holiday fun! Over 150 Brambletonians and their friends participated in the 3-mile Jingle Bell Run/Walk which took them around the Town Center and along neighborhood trails. All proceeds from the walk were donated to the Legacy Elementary School Track Fund, which totaled over $3,500 in registrations, corporate sponsorships and generous family donations.

After the walk, the crowd enjoyed free children’s crafts inside the Welcome Center, a face painter, door prizes, horse & carriage rides and a DJ piping great holiday tunes around the Town Center Plaza as they shopped. The day’s festivities wrapped up with a community countdown for the lighting of the Christmas Tree. The tree will remain lit throughout the holiday season and the Menorah will be lit starting the first day of Hanukkah, December 11th. Thanks to all of the sponsors who helped make this event successful and a great fundraiser for Legacy Elementary School: Brambleton Group, Beazer Homes, Centex Homes, Gulick Group, Miller & Smith, Northern Virginia Orthodontics, Stanley Martin, Van Metre, Verizon and Winchester Homes. Thank you also to volunteers from the Briar Woods High School Key Club who assisted with the children’s craft tables. Click here to view photos from the event.
