This August 30, several elected leaders and other officials will join together to sing karaoke at the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce’s Char-a-oke: A Charity Karaoke Sing-Off for Our Schools event.
Starting at 6 p.m. at the Westwood Country Club, hundreds of members of the Northern Virginia business community, elected officials and other notables will attend and/or sing a karaoke song. This list includes Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova, Delegates Dave Albo, Vivian Watts, David Bulova, Scott Surovell, Eileen Filler-Corn, Mark Keam and Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Superintendent Jack Dale.
“Through the education foundation, businesses in Fairfax County work hand in hand with our world class public school system as it educates our future citizens and workers,” said Fairfax Chamber President & CEO Jim Corcoran. “We’re thrilled to see such a high level of support from our elected officials and other leaders in our community for the Char-a-oke fundraiser to support education. It promises to be a great turnout for a very fun and light-hearted event for a great cause – our students.”
Participants can volunteer to sing by themselves or with a group. All proceeds will benefit the Education Foundation for FCPS. Since the Education Foundation begin in January 2011, it has raised over half a million dollars for the school system. Admission is $50, which includes food, beverages and a chance to network with Virginia’s leaders.
