Our featured community outreach in June is with The ART of Driving. The ART of Driving was founded by Robyn Thompson after her sixteen year old daughter, Ashley, lost her life in a singular vehicular accident in 2003. Robyn created The ART of Driving program in memory of her daughter to increase awareness among teens and parents of the unique risks faced by young, novice drivers and to impress upon them the need for improved training, increased supervised time behind-the-wheel, and increased parental involvement. The ART of Driving is also advocating for improvements in driver education for our youth and seeks to change the mindset of teens and their parents that tragedies like this “won’t happen to me”.
This June, Salon Khouri will be donating $1 from every haircut to The ART of Driving. We encourage you to sign up for their first charity run/walk 5k, Survive the 5, which will be held Saturday, October 4th at 9 am at Cameron Run Water Park in Alexandria, VA. It will be a beautiful morning and is a family event!
