The Resort Bear Creek Fire Department will host its 24th annual 'Firefighters and Friends Night Out' fundraising party from 6-11 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at the Grand Unity Event Center (Knights of Columbus Hall) on Charlevoix Avenue in Petoskey.
The event will feature a grazing buffet with food courtesy of Sweetwater Catering, a cash bar, live music by Derailed, and dancing. Raffle tickets will be on sale at the event for various prize drawings and silent auction items.
The cost to attend is $35 per person, with limited quantities of tickets available. Tickets can be purchased at Bill & Carol's West Side Grocery in Petoskey or from any Resort Bear Creek firefighter or fire station. Event proceeds will help support the fire department's fire prevention programs.
Dozens of area businesses are supporting the event by way of sponsorships and prize donations.
