Tysons, Va. –The Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce (Northern Virginia Chamber) and the Professional Services Council (PSC) have announced finalists for the 16th Annual Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards™, the premier awards event for the Washington area government contracting community.  The winners of the most prestigious awards in the industry will be named at a Nov. 5 gala at The Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner.

In keeping with the program’s history of identifying a charitable partner, the 2018 Charity Partner is Luke’s Wings, an organization dedicated to the support of service members who have been wounded in battle.  Recognizing the immediate need for families to be with their loved ones at such a difficult time, Luke’s Wings provides families with the means to visit during the service member’s hospitalization and rehabilitation. By purchasing travel agency services and travel tickets for loved ones, Luke’s Wings provides an immediate and invaluable service to the families of our men and women at arms while also helping to encourage and motivate the service member’s recovery.
