Gaithersburg /Germantown, MD (October 4, 2018) – The leaves are changing, it’s starting to get a little cooler, but at the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) we are turning up the heat and just getting started with events this fall for everyone.
We kicked off October with a Fall networking mingle at DeLeon & Stang, CPAs & Advisors, located at 100 Lakeforest Boulevard, Suite 650, Gaithersburg, MD, on October 3, 2018.

To mark the occasion, DeLeon & Stang had donation boxes around the office – and made a matching donation to – for The Dick and Jody Vilardo Foundation, which supports the Children’s Inn at NIH. The foundation inspires individuals and organizations to give back to their communities. The Dick and Jody Vilardo Foundation was created in the Fall of 2015 by the Vilardo family, to celebrate the lives of Dick and Jody Vilardo and their contribution of giving back to the community. Jody Vilardo and her husband, Richard Vilardo, were found stabbed to death at their Rockville, Maryland, home on Mother’s Day 2015. The foundation was formed to honor their memory.

DeLeon & Stang is an accounting firm providing accounting, tax, audit, advisory, and financial services to individuals and businesses. Their footprint in the Mid-Atlantic region spans more than 30 years. But with growth, comes change. Recently, the DeLeon & Stang team renovated their office, conference rooms, and added a game room equipped with massage chairs, Wii, a foosball table and more. They also rebranded to include their new “The D&S Way!”, which includes a commitment to putting their people first, embracing technology, understanding their client & industry needs, exceeding expectations, and improving continuously.
