Asbury Fire Department Gearing Up For Annual Fundraiser
You won't need to know when to hold 'em or when to fold 'em next weekend! Get ready for Vegas Night, a fun-filled evening with a cause. The Asbury Fire Department will host their Annual Las Vegas Night fundraiser on Saturday night, October 2nd from 7:00 pm to midnight at the fire station, located at 5485 Saratoga Rd in Asbury. You can expect refreshments, food, a silent auction, a raffle, and of course, lots of amazing prizes provided by local businesses! Raffle tickets have been mailed, but will also be available the night of the event. Please feel free to tip your hand to this great event by making a donation of your choosing! Anything and everything helps.
All proceeds will go toward replacing the bunker gear for our brave firemen. Bunker gear is the personal protective equipment (PPE) used by firefighters. This includes their fire protective trousers, coat, overalls, boots, helmets, etc. The gear runs about $3000 per firefighter, which can clearly get pricey really fast. Remember, this is a volunteer fire department that relies on the support of the community to stay up and running. Let's help show our local fire department that we care and appreciate all that they do. If you stop out, I'll bet you 3 to 1 odds you'll have a good time, all while supporting a good cause!
