The goal may have shifted slightly, but the Litchfield Fire Department Dinner Dance scheduled for March 9 is still focused on those who have served their community.
The event, which will be from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Litchfield Community Center on March 9, was originally scheduled to be a fundraiser for the public service memorial, which will honor the two police officers and two firefighters who lost their lives during service to the City of Litchfield.
While a portion of the funds will still go to the memorial, a more pressing need has arisen in the Litchfield Fire Department family, Jake Law, a ten year veteran of the Litchfield Fire Department and 19 year member of the Litchfield Volunteer Fire Department. Law, who has two children, was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and some of the funds raised will go to help Law's family with immediate expenses.
The cost is $100 per couple, and the night includes a prime rib dinner, silent/live auction and musical entertainment by Lick Creek Band. There will also be a $1,000 giveaway.
To purchase tickets, contact Adam Pennock at 217-556-3215.
T-shirts supporting Law will also be on sale in the near future. For more information on those, call Tom Priddle at 217-851-1924.
