CHVFD prepares annual fundraiser

CENTRAL HIGH — Central High’s Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting its 7th annual Fundraiser, Car Show and Indian Taco Dinner from 2-7 p.m. Saturday, June 9 at the Central High Community Building and Fire Department.

This event was begun in order to raise funds that could provide the department with needed equipment they need to acquire or to replace. This year the money will go towards purchasing a new set of jaws of life.

Registration for the car show has already begun with early registration costing $15. On the day of the event, it will be $20. This is always a fairly large show, according to those in charge, and looks to be the same this year.

“We already have more than 20 signed up and we had about 60 register last year,” said Dan Eberhart, who is in charge of the car show. “We hope to have that many or more this year.”

Another aspect of the fundraiser is their Gun Raffle, where they sell tickets for four different guns. The drawing will take place at 7 p.m. In addition to these activities, there will be other various entertainments.

Air Evac will be flying in its helicopter to show to those who attend and live band Double Branded, featuring Chris Caldwell Jr., will be playing. Also, a 50/50 drawing will take place and bounce structures will be available for children.

A live auction will take place during the fundraiser and from 4-6 p.m. an Indian taco dinner will be served. There is no cost for the dinner but donations will be accepted. The Fire Department will also have T-shirts for sale.

“We hope everyone come out to enjoy themselves,” said David McCarley with the department. “It’s supposed to be a sunny day.”
