The Matt Garcia Foundation Golf Tournament
"A special thank you to all of the sponsors, donors, participants and volunteers for your support during the 11th Annual Matt Garcia Foundation Golf Tournament. Through your donations and volunteer help we are able to accomplish worthwhile projects, including awarding college scholarships, hosting community trash clean up events, and mentoring youth. Together we can continue to keep Matt Garcia's dream alive of supporting local youth, reducing crime and strengthening our community!"

Spooktober Fest 2021
Spooktober Fest 2021 brought life and joy to Downtown Fairfield! 200+ trick-or-treaters strolled the streets of our downtown, collecting candy from our downtown businesses, local vendors, and organizations. After trick-or-treating, many partook in our costume contests, showing off their cool costumes and their mightiest roars. Our evening ended with snacks and a movie night on the Annex Lawn. All in all, our youth was able to make memories and connections within the heart of our city. Thank you to the attendees, downtown businesses, vendors, organizations, and volunteers for helping us Keep the Dream Alive.
