Fairfax: Week in Fairfax

Chipotle Fundraiser for Lanier FCCLA

After winning gold medals at states, two students from Lanier Middle School and one from Fairfax High will compete, July 2-7, in the National FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) Leadership Conference in San Diego. But they need to raise the money for it right now.

It’ll cost at least $1,800/student for travel, registration and lodging, so advisor Susan von Schaack is seeking businesses and organizations to sponsor them. Individual donations from the community are also welcome.

People may also help by attending a fundraiser Monday, April 25, between 5-8 p.m., at the Kamp Washington Chipotle, 11062 Lee Hwy. in Fairfax. For each person who tells the cashier they’re supporting Lanier’s fundraiser, Chipotle will donate 50 percent of money from that customer’s purchase to the Lanier FCCLA.

To contribute, email SEVonSchaack@fcps.edu or send a check payable to Lanier FCCLA to: Lanier Middle School, 3801 Jermantown Road, Fairfax, VA 22030. Frequent-flyer miles for United Airlines in the amount of 50,000 miles may also be donated.
