FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - It’s heating up in Fair Oaks, and the hottest ticket in town was the sold-out 26th Annual a Taste of Fair Oaks event held at North Ridge Country Club on June 7th. It was a spectacular showcase of wineries, micro-breweries, restaurants, and even our local grocery stores, sampling out the best they have to offer. Chamber President and Committee Chairperson Roselyn Barbray stated, “I’m so grateful for another sold-out event and that the community continues to support it. We greatly appreciate our many sponsors, exhibitors, and donors, because we could not do this event without them, year after year!” This is the Chamber’s largest, single fundraising event each year and this year did not disappoint with over 125 silent auction items, the wine wall, and other fun contests. The Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food Bank will soon be awarded with a portion of the proceeds, to help our neighbors in need.

The race for our 42nd Honorary Mayor is heating up, too! Jacob Giorgi, President of House to Home Moving, is raising money for Adopt an Elder Foundation, a local non-profit organization supporting low income seniors; and Matthew Mason, a June 2019 graduate of Bella Vista and the youngest candidate in history, is raising money for the BV Visual Arts Department. Come join in the fundraising fun at their many events this summer and feel good knowing that your contributions stay right here in our community, making a difference for others. The candidate which raises the most money by early September will have bragging rights! Since its inception in 1979, candidates have raised over $435,000 for various causes and projects in our community!

It’s not too hot to come out and enjoy this summer’s Concerts in the Park! Bring your lawn chair and leave the cooking to us because your purchases of pizza (generously donated to us by Del’s Pizza), hot dogs, popcorn and ice cream sundaes raise funds for Fair Oaks! Concerts, which are free, run every Thursday through August 22nd (except July 4th), from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm in Fair Oaks Village Park.

None of these events would be possible without the countless volunteers from our member businesses, sponsors, community partners and YOU! This year alone, we have added twenty five new members to the Chamber and we encourage you to check out our on-line Business Directory before you shop, enlist a service, or dine out. We appreciate your continued support! Please visit https://www.fairoakschamber.com/ for all of the details or contact Kim at info@fairoakschamber.com.

See you in Fair Oaks!
