The Surf City Volunteer Fire Co. Women’s Auxiliary is hosting its biggest fundraiser of the year July 17 at the firehouse on Long Beach Boulevard. The flea market, raffle and silent auction event starts at 9 a.m. The silent auction closes at 2:30 p.m., and the raffle call begins after 3 p.m.

For sale will be everything from jewelry and beach chairs to fishing gear and T-shirts. The grand prize of the silent auction is a trip to Cabo San Lucas.

Tickets for Chowderfest, the LBI Foundation house tour, and a New York Yankees game as well as a signed New York Jets football are also among the items up for grab. Gift baskets featuring an assortment of unique items from local merchants will be raffled off as well.

Breakfast, lunch and baked goods will be for sale inside the firehouse. Special handmade crafts, books and white elephant items will also be available to purchase.

Proceeds from this event aid the auxiliary in its annual donation to the fire company at the end of the year. The Women’s Auxiliary is always looking for new members and meets at the firehouse the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. Volunteers from anywhere on the Island as well as the mainland, permanent and seasonal, are welcome. —G.G.S.
