This family-friendly fundraiser, 7-10 p.m., features food, dancing with a DJ, and a silent auction.
The event raises money for college scholarships for students at Falls Church High School. Annandale resident Nancy Joyner established the Team Joyner Foundation to memorialize her son, Clayton Joyner, a Falls Church High School graduate, former swim coach at the school, and former swim coach at the Holmes Run Pool, who died in 2014.
The foundation has so far funded 16 scholarships to help needy students attend Northern Virginia Community College. Two more scholarships will be awarded after the Coach CJ Celebration.
The silent auction will include gift cards for local restaurants and a veterinarian clinic, memberships to the Holmes Run and Broyhill Crest pools, dozens of gift baskets, a private dinner for eight people, autographed sports items, and much more. The event includes hors d’oeuvres, craft beer, wine, non-alcoholic drinks, dessert, and coffee.
Tickets are $25 per person and $15 for youths under 21. The family rate is $100. Tickets are available at the door or pay in advance via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
