Do you love karaoke? How about “char-a-oke?” This Thursday, Aug. 29 is Fairfax County Public Schools’ third annual charitable karaoke fundraiser, known as “Char-a-oke.” Locals are invited to build employee engagement by putting together a team to belt out your favorite karaoke song, or attend as a guest for great networking and delicious catering from Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Proceeds benefit the Education Foundation for Fairfax County Public Schools. Entrants compete for trophies like Best Vocals, Best Rendition, Crowd Favorite and Most Spirited. Raffle tickets are also available for $20 each, and can win you a five-night stay at any Hilton hotel worldwide. Tickets range from $75 for a single spectator to $1,000 for a team package with extra perks. It all takes place at the Barns at Wolf Trap, in Vienna.
