Chesterfield, Keeseville Knights to host benefit dinner for United Way

Portion of tickets for meal donated to Irene victims

— The Knights of Columbus will host a fundraising meal for the United Way this Saturday, Oct. 22.

The meal starts at 4 p.m. and continues through 7 p.m.

“It will be a buffet-style dinner and there is going to be plenty of food,” Gerald Morrow, town of Chesterfield supervisor and chairman of the 2012 United Way fundraising campaign, said. “It will be a turkey dinner with all of the fixings, and we have 280 pounds of turkey that we need to get carved up and ready to go. We will also have pies for desserts, and takeouts will be available.”

Morrow said that there will also be raffles as part of the dinner.

“It’s a chance to enjoy a meal and support an organization that helps their community,” Morrow said.

Morrow added that, thanks to some donations, the event received 100 meal tickets that will be given away for free to people who were affected by the recent flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene.

The tickets will be distributed through the Town of Jay Supervisor and Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randall “Randy” Douglas, who said that people who were interested in the tickets can contact the Jay town offices at 647-2204.

For more information on the dinner or to order a take-out meal, call 834-4689.
