To show their support, Otho Morgan Post 17 partnered with Mike Castleberry to host a fundraiser for Greenville Fire and Rescue on Sept. 30. The host band for the event was Bad Moon Rising, who rocked the house.
The event began with a “Drunken Chicken” dinner prepared by the bartenders. There was a raffle, auction and live music. The proceeds from the event went to the Greenville Fire Department. “The men and women of the fire department run toward situations most people run away from. We just want to show you guys that we have your back,” said Jason Castleberry, Post 17 Finance Officer. Jerry Rodgers, Anthony Hilliard and Jeff Jameson from the Greenville Fire Department were in attendance and accepted the donation.
The event raised $600 to support the needs of Greenville Fire and Rescue. The post wants to thank everyone who attended the event, the officers and volunteer staff who organized the event and the bands who played the event.
The American Legion will be hosting a Helping Hands Jam on Oct. 28 from 8 PM to 11 PM to support the Salvation Army.
