GALA 2017 Recap: DC’s Finest Dress to Impress

October 6, 2017

Each year at the Great American Living Awards, attendees are given one complimentary drink and an evening of unlimited entertainment as they gather to honor the top professionals in residential home design, sales, and marketing in the metropolitan D.C. market. We were thrilled to be the social media sponsors at this prestigious event for the third year in a row, and had an unforgettable night filled with amazing conversation and some hilarious TapSnap pictures to take home with us!

To start off the evening, Rhonda took the stage in a perfect display of beauty and talent, with an elegant rendition of “What a Wonderful World” to get the audience going. Following her performance and the first few awards was a heart-warming tribute to Jim Vance during which Jodi Leigh spoke of his life, work, passions, and amazing soul that he instilled in this community. As a slideshow of photos rolled through, highlighting some of Jim’s best looks, an early hairdo brought everyone’s attention to the big screen.

As presenters Larry and Rhonda announced the award recipients in record-time throughout the evening, we were thrilled to hear the name “Borcz+Dixon” booming through the microphone, not one, but six times! The list of awards we received are as follows:

Best Social Media, Planned Community: One Loudoun Facebook and Twitter (Miller & Smith, One Loudoun, Borcz+Dixon)
