On Saturday, August 20, a Beef & Beverage Benefit was held at our Station 1 to assist R. Clarke Brittingham, one of our members who is terminally ill. About 200 people enjoyed the fine food, drinks, and entertainment. Music was provided by Keeper Of The Stars and a surprise musical guest performed. A silent auction was conducted during dinner. A live auction followed with an auctioneer from Three Seasons Auctions. A standby fire crew was provided by Memorial Fire Company of Slaughter Beach. The members of the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank all of the area residents and businesses whose donations made this benefit a success.
