GTSI Dress Down Friday

For the second year in a row, GTSI, VA employees chose DASH to benefit from it’s Dress Down Friday! On February 3, 2012, employees who gave a donation of $2 or more to DASH were allowed to wear jeans to work. Special thanks to Joe Uglialoro for spearheading this effort on behalf of DASH.

Fund Raisers

  • Flippin’ Pizza of Chantilly hosted us and contributed 50% of their proceeds to DASH. Delicious pizza, good friends and loving memories of Siobhan.
  • Bake Sale held by Chantilly High School students Valerie Claunch, Melissa Howell and Patrick Linnehan as their impact project. They raised over $300 selling their delicious baked goods.
  •  DASH DAY at Chantilly High School held by Chantilly High School students Kelly Stofko and Caroline Herodet as their impact project. The girls put up posters and set-up an information table all about DASH.

Recently DASH asked: What would be a unique way to raise awareness of teen dating abuse in your community?

The best answer, and action, came from Kim Crisp and all the employees at GTSI, VA. To raise awareness and much needed funds for DASH, a “Dress Down Friday” took place on February 4, 2011. What a great idea to get everyone involved. A huge thank you to everyone who participated, and made the statement “Dating Abuse Stops Here”.
