At the Falls Church Lions Club meeting on Tuesday, Dr. Vince Dougherty, a member of the Lions Club, was awarded the Lions of Virginia Distinguished Humanitarian award.

For more than 20 years, Dougherty has been a leader of the local business community, assisting numerous causes, donating to charities, working with the Falls Church Chamber of Commerce, and helping Falls Church Lions charities.

Dougherty’s support of Lions’ activities speaks only to one of many roles he plays in helping others. Over the years, he has contributed to charities, community organizations, and local causes like the Mission of Mercy, where he offers his time and talents to help those in need of dental work.

Virginia Lions recognize outstanding commitment and dedication to the ideal of rendering humanitarian service by selecting members of the community for this honor.
