The third annual “FCRC Evening on Capitol Hill” will also feature Reps. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), chief deputy whip; Tom Price (R-Ga.), chairman of the Republican policy committee; Frank Wolf (R-Va.); Robert Hurt (R-Va.); Mike Rogers (R-Mich); John Shimkus (R-Ill.); Adrian Smith (R-Ne.); and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.).

Last year, more than than 100 Fairfax County Republicans raised about $15,000 for for the county’s GOP committee.

Anthony Bedell, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, says the event offers Republicans an opportunity to meet members of Congress that they often see on TV.

Tickets are $50 to $250. The invitation asks for donations of up to $2,400 per individuals or up to $5,000 from a political action committee or political party committee.
