FOR BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS OF FAUQUIER
The campaign encouraged the pay-it-forward principle of doing something nice for others. So with a little collaboration and holiday magic, Tyler and Lindsey came up with a plan to spread Christmas cheer to the children of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fauquier. Levi Magyar joined and continues to lend exceptional filming and photography to make the event more fun!
After two years of success, they have made this an annual tradition, involving the community to give these children a Christmas to remember!
On Tuesday, December 18, we will bring the North Pole to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fauquier. Gum Drop Square has generously offered to lend a hand in bringing the vision to life! Santa and his elves will arrive at 4PM with the Warrenton Fire Department, escorted by the Warrenton Police Department.
The children and the elves, along with volunteers, Fauquier deputies and Warrenton police, will play in Santa's workshop with the children preparing for Christmas at different stations (i.e. snowball throwing, Christmas-wrapping competitions, building gingerbread houses, etc.). Each child will have the chance to share wish lists with Santa and bring home a present to put under the tree (order a sweatshirt for a child below). The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance will be bringing instruments and music for the children to enjoy!
In addition to building the North Pole, just one day of fun, we recognize the Boys and Girls Club has many ongoing needs. With help from the community, we are helping them purchase items for the Club to continue making the club a wonderful place for the children to come spend time after school and Christmas presents for the kids.

Our Past Projects
On December 19, we brought the North Pole to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fauquier. Gum Drop Square and the Fauquier Community Theatre generously offered to lend a hand in bringing the vision to life! Santa's elves (volunteers, Fauquier deputies and Warrenton police) worked diligently in Santa's workshop with the children preparing for Christmas at different stations (i.e. snowball throwing, Christmas-wrapping competitions, building gingerbread houses, etc.). Each child had the chance to share wish lists with Santa and bring home a present to put under the tree.
Santa and his helpers arrived at the Boys and Girls Club of Fauquier to deliver some Christmas spirit filled with food, treats, gifts, music and games.
