Virginia Organizing Holds ‘Unsung Heroes’ Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

A group of people who don't often get the credit they deserve are being honored. Virginia Organizing hosted the "Unsung Heroes" fundraiser Friday night. It featured people and their contributions in the community that often go unrecognized.

Organizers say it's a way to keep people motivated.

"People don't work like this to be honored but it's nice for somebody to say ‘thank you’ in a way where there are other people around to applaud,” said Jay Johnson, a member of Virginia Organizing.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds will benefit The Haven, a center working to reduce homelessness.
