State Representative Tony Hwang partnered with the Fairfield Community Theatre in kicking off the holiday season by hosting the 2nd annual “fun” raising event for Operation Hope. A capacity crowd of over 350 local residents, predominately families with young children, attended the showing of the holiday movie “ELF,” starring Will Ferrell.
Admission to the event was a donation of a non-perishable canned food or $5 to benefit Operation Hope. Many overflowing bins of donated food were collected and delivered to the organization’s Food Pantry. Cash donations of over $500 were collected which will go toward the purchase of holiday gifts for families staying at the Operation Hope shelter. Carla Miklos, Executive Director of Operation Hope enthusiastically stated “We are so grateful for State Rep. Hwang’s creative idea and this is a wonderful opportunity to get into the holiday spirit.” Read More→
