The merchants of Vienna Shopping Center donated $1,000 to James Madison High School as part of the shopping center's Holiday Shopping Spree promotion. The school received the donation thanks to Maddie Hovis of Vienna. Hovis, who is a freshman at James Madison, listed the school on the entry form she filled out for a shopping spree drawing. In addition to a $1,000 donation to the school, Hovis won a $500 shopping spree to Vienna Shopping Center for herself, half of which she donated to a local food bank.
This is the ninth year the merchants of Vienna Shopping Center have donated funds to a local school. Previous recipients include Flint Hill Elementary, Thoreau Middle, Wolftrap Elementary, Westbriar Elementary, and Vienna Elementary schools.
Featuring Magruder's, Panera Bread and Robeks, Vienna Shopping Center is at the intersection of Maple Avenue and Courthouse Road in Vienna. The shopping center is owned by The Vienna Shopping Center Limited Partnership and is managed by The Rappaport Companies of McLean.
