Celebrate Fairfax, Inc. (CFI), producer of the award winning Celebrate Fairfax! Festival, does more than just put on a world class fair. They also give back to the community all year long! CFI uses fundraisers throughout the year and its 5K run to raise funds for the Celebrate Fairfax Community Spirit Scholarship Program. First awarded in 2012, ten Community Spirit Scholarships are given annually to Fairfax County graduating seniors who demonstrate excellence in community service, leadership, academics and extracurricular activities. The scholar winners are selected by the Board of the nonprofit Celebrate Fairfax, Inc., with one scholarship recipient from each of Fairfax County’s Magesterial Districts, as well as one at-large scholarship. Awardees were feted at the Celebrate Fairfax Celebrate Fairfax Festival Kickoff May 22. In addition to their award, each recipient receives a ticket to the Celebrate Fairfax Festivities.
Another community service CFI offers are the free workshops throughout the year on how to plan and execute successful events. These trainings are well attended by local nonprofits seeking to emulate the success of CFI events.
Big H/T to Celebrate Fairfax for not only putting on a great fair, but also for being a good community steward!
