November 2022


Thanks for another successful

Charity Golf Tournament!

Thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s Matt Garcia Charity Golf Tournament a success. The event was held at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club in Vallejo. With the generous help of sponsors, players and volunteer staff, we raised $13,000!! The proceeds will be used to help fund our ongoing goals of helping youth and making Fairfield a better place to live. Without your support, we would not be able to provide scholarships to underprivileged youth, mentoring and many of our other worthwhile endeavors.  Our 2023 golf tournament will be held at beautiful Rancho Solano Golf Course in Fairfield.  

Spooktoberfest 2022 Downtown Fairfield

Children dressed in their Halloween costumes could be seen walking downtown Fairfield trick or treating at this year’s Spooktoberfest. It was so wonderful seeing all the businesses passing out candy to the trick or treaters. After getting their candy they were able to sit on the grass and watch Casper. 


The group from the Missouri Street Theatre, MYST, gave a great A Capella performance. Also, thanks to Gordons Music for always helping us with our sound needs and anything else we ask for.

A BIG shout out to The Matt Garcia Foundation volunteers who always step up to Keep Matt’s Dream Alive. We are forever grateful to our board members, advisory board, and community volunteers.

You have made, and continue to make, The Matt Garcia Foundation what it is and has been for these past 14 years.
