On Friday, July 24, the Orange Ale House will host a fundraiser to assist the Orange Board of Finance in the Fire Truck $50K Challenge that it’s sponsoring to assist the Orange Volunteer Fire Association during this very difficult Pandemic year.

NOTE: This isn’t a big gathering type fundraiser. Just come in and see the firefighters about donating to the cause and receive your gift certificate. See “more help” below.

Back on June 4, Orange Live posted a story about the $50K Challenge.

The Fire Department decided back in May to cancel its biggest fundraiser of the year — the Firemen’s Carnival — due to the coronavirus concerns and all of the uncertainty about how to keep the firefighters and the public safe, including how do you achieve proper social distancing at a bustling carnival that is often overrun with teens and children.

HERE is a YouTube video of Finance vice-chair Jim Leahy talking about the program. For more information on the department’s need for money, watch this longer VIDEO as well.

More Help

Jim Hassenmayer, owner of the Orange Ale House is known far and wide for his support of charitable events. This week he met with Leahy and agreed to an incredibly generous deal to bring in more money for the $50K Challenge.

From 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, July 24, Orange Volunteer Firefighters will be at the Ale House, 517 Boston Post Road, selling $30 gift certificates to the Bar and Grille for just $25.

Hassenmayer donated 200 of these certificates, and the OVFD will keep 100% of the $25 that it costs you, for their operating expenses as explained in the videos.

Details: The certificates can be used the following day, July 25, 2020, through July 24, 2021. The certificate entitles you to $30 off your check when you spend a minimum of $40 on food and beverages. One certificate per table per visit. Cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts.

“Carnival” Raffle Tickets

For your convenience, the firefighters also will be selling “Carnival” raffle tickets on-site for $5 each.
