Community Design Assistance Center 20th anniversary celebration

BLACKSBURG, Va., Oct. 31, 2008 – Looking for something out of the routine to do on Friday? Schedule the babysitter now, because space is still available at Virginia Tech's Community Design Assistance Center 20th Anniversary Celebration on Fri., Nov. 7, at 6 p.m.

The celebration includes dinner and a silent auction for getaways and baskets at the Blacksburg Country Club. The cost is $38 per person. Reservations are required by Tuesday, Nov. 4; call (540) 231-5644 or e-mail Kim Steika.

The silent auction portion of the celebration event will raise funds for the continued support of the Community Design Assistance Center. The admission price is the price the center pays for the dinner. Donations are welcomed.

The Community Design Assistance Center’s guiding philosophy is Healthy Living by Design — creating designs that take into consideration the health of the environment, as well as the well-being of the users. The center assists communities, neighborhood groups, and non-profit organizations in improving their natural and built environments through design, planning, policy, and research. Through the integration of the learning and working environments, the Community Design Assistance Center executes projects that link instruction and research and share its knowledge base with the general public.
