The Borough of Caldwell and The American Legion Post 185 are planning to hold a fundraising event at the American Legion Post 185, on Sat., Dec.17 from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
A $10 suggested donation at the door entitles visitors to hot and cold food items, coffee and dessert, plus soda or water. A cash bar will be available.
The Caldwell Volunteer Fire Department will be featuring their equipment in the parking lot behind the American Legion all day.
“We are pleased to be able to host this event and to help out our fellow Caldwell residents who tragically lost everything in a recent fire on Orchard Square,” informed Dan Handy, Commander of the American Legion Post 185.
Other committee members include former Caldwell Councilman and retired Caldwell Police Captain Joseph DeBellis, Legion members Billy Hyer, Sam Kent, and Rick DeMunno, Mayor Dassing and Councilman Capozzoli.
“We’d like to thank the American Legion for hosting this community event and we’d also like to thank Calandra’s Italian Village, Jack’s Super Foodtown, Fortes Restaurant and Shop-Rite for donating sandwiches, desserts, pasta dishes, chicken fingers hotdogs, soda and water for the event. We hope people stop in and have a meal and make a small contribution to ease the burden of these families, who are our neighbors,” said Mayor Ann Dassing.
Checks can be made out to The American Legion, a registered 501c-3 charity. Please indicate ‘Fire Victims Donation’ in the memo section. For more information about the event, contact Dassing at 973-403-0032.
