Reston Town Center’s ice skating pavilion presented a check for $2,966 to Reston Character Counts! Coalition. As an annual tradition, the coalition has received 50 percent of the opening weekend proceeds from the Reston Town Center ice skating pavilion for many years. This contribution helps fund the coalition’s development programs, including the annual Essay and Poster Contest, and sponsorship of Ethics Day at South Lakes High School.

Reston Town Center’s ice skating pavilion is open daily for recreational skating until the season concludes on Sunday, March 10, as weather permits, and will re-open for the 2013-2014 season on November 1. Throughout the ice skating season, the rink hosts a number of fundraising events for a variety of non-profit organizations. For more information on booking fundraisers, birthday parties, private parties, lessons, and other options at the Reston Town Center ice skating pavilion, call the skating hotline, 703-709-6300, or email skating@restontowncenter.com.
