We are truly thankful for the Foundation’s support.”
“The City of Fairfax Band enriches and entertains our community with exceptional musical performances throughout the year,” said Callista Gingrich, President of the Gingrich Foundation. “Newt and I are honored to support and be a part of this fine organization.”
