Celebration Honors Partnership with Joey Pizzano Memorial Fund

Celebration Honors Partnership with Joey Pizzano Memorial Fund

On Saturday, September 8, 2018, the Fairfax County Park Foundation and the Fairfax County Park Authority celebrated the Joey Pizzano Memorial Fund’s (JPMF) 20th Anniversary with a Family Fun Day Celebration at Our Special Harbor in Alexandria, VA. 

Located in Lee District Family Recreation Area, Our Special Harbor is a fully accessible sprayground inspired by Joey Pizzano’s love of the Chesapeake Bay. In 2009, JPMF donated the turnkey design and construction of Our Special Harbor. Earlier this year, JPMF donated a gift in excess of $40,000 to the Fairfax County Park Foundation to mark the 20-year anniversary. Their generosity funded four wheelchairs for Fairfax County Park Authority’s adapted aquatics programs at Audrey Moore, Lee District, Oak Marr and South Run RECenters. It also funded four new features at Our Special Harbor in honor of the organization’s 20th anniversary.
