This Week's Super NOVA Creates a New Platform for Non-Profit Organizations

A Super NOVA is a person with a unique talent or business that makes them stand out in the crowd of Northern Virginia. Nina Un of the McLean/Falls Church area is this week’s Super NOVA for her dedication to non-profit organizations. Un had a casual idea this past October that lead to the development of her organization, Care to Lunch.

Care to Lunch is a charity-focused lunch networking group, and a forum for non-profits to gain awareness, as well as new members. She wanted to do something that was easy and accessible for people because as a mother of 2 young boys she felt that she didn’t really have the time to go to all the happy hours and galas around town to give back. The lunches are bi-monthly and held in Tyson’s Corner.

“Our goal is not to write a check for any organization.  The whole point is about creating the connections for non-profits to facilitate relations that can hopefully lead them to bigger donors or greater donations for them in the future or just increase membership,” said Un.

Un aims to attract a good mix of people at the luncheons and also tries to feature non-profits that are overlooked or overshadowed to give them a platform to grow.

“I am truly inspired by the people I have come across,” said Un.

Watch the video to learn how the Care to Lunch organization works and how non-profit organizations are selected. Look out for more Super NOVAs every Wednesday afternoon going forward. Email escott@wusa9.com if you want to nominate yourself, or someone you know that deserves to be recognized as a Super NOVA!
