Oakton Women’s Club Supports Shepherd’s Center of Oakton-Vienna

Each year the Oakton Women’s Club hosts their fashion show in Oakton to raise money to support the local community. The Shepherd’s Center of Oakton-Vienna (SCOV) was the recipient of the net proceeds for the 2013 fashion show and received a generous $1,000 donation.

Founded in 1997, SCOV is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for adults (50-plus) to seek rewarding lives and to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. In 2012 SCOV provided services and programs to more than 3,000 older adults in the Oakton, Vienna, Dunn Loring, Merrifield and portions of Reston and Fairfax areas. In 2012 it was voted the Best Nonprofit of the Year (2012) by the Vienna Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce. In September, 2013 SCOV was selected the Charity of the Month by WTOP 103.5FM Radio.
