Loudoun Cares and Legacy Farms Named Live Well Festival Beneficiaries

The Live Well Loudoun Festival’s selection committee has selected two Loudoun County non-profits as the beneficiaries of its April 22 event. Loudoun Cares was named the primary beneficiary and Legacy Farms as the runner-up, according to a committee news release.

The Live Well Loudoun Festival is a free community celebration designed to give residents the opportunity to experience Loudoun-based service and product organizations who “engage the Loudoun community to live mindfully.”

Of all the non-profit applicants, Loudoun Cares and Legacy Farms were determined to align best with the festival’s mission of mindful living. Both Leesburg-based nonprofits will receive voluntary attendee donations and promotional consideration, according to the release.

“It was tough to choose a winner from the amazing number of nonprofit organizations that serve Loudoun County residents,” Live Well Loudoun Festival founder Natalie Hughes said. “We are grateful that county residents will benefit from the additional work these nonprofits will be able to do through Festival donations.”

Loudoun Cares serves as a bridge between government agencies, community-based organizations and faith communities. The organization helps connect county residents to services through ongoing outreach and collaboration. These partnerships provide a streamline approach for fast and efficient delivery of service.

Loudoun Cares offers office space and executive consulting for non-profits, an information and referral hotline, volunteer programs and fundraising events.

Legacy Farms is a green care, social venture dedicated to providing support services and agrarian based vocational training for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental and social challenges. The organization also helps adults find jobs once they’ve completed the job skills training.

The Live Well Loudoun Festival will held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 22 at the fields of One Loudoun in Ashburn. The Ashburn Area Running Club races will start near the Festival entrance at 8 a.m. Festival activities will include the Main Stage, with performances and classes; Children’s Corner; “how to” workshops; product and services exhibits; and a Community Stage to showcase local nonprofit talent.
