Ticonderoga PRIDE of Ticonderoga is planning a beach party to help community residents in need.
Billed as Neighbors Helping Neighbors, the fundraiser will be held at the town beach on Black Point Road Friday, July 5, 5 to 7 p.m.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors will feature a pig roast with mac and cheese, cole slaw, baked beans, and one free beverage. Beverages will be lemonade, ice tea, beer and wine and can be purchased for $2 each after the one free beverage.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 5-12. Children younger than age free will be free.
“The funds raised will provide area qualified residents assistance with emergency home repairs,” Sheridan Burleigh, president of PRIDE, said. “The purpose of Neighbors Helping Neighbors is to have non-grant funds available for those residents in desperate need to cover the costs of failed furnaces, leaking roofs and needing handicap accessible entrances to allow seniors to stay in their homes.”
Live music will be provided by Chris LaPointe and Company.
“We want this to be a community event and what better place to gather than the wonderful Ticonderoga beach with its amazing views,” said Sharon Reynolds, PRIDE executive director.
The 2012 Neighbors Helping Neighbors event raised $4,412.
Tickets are available at the PRIDE office and can be purchased from board members George Sperry, Kathy Liddell, John Bartlett, Stu Baker, Ross Kelley, Janet Mallon and Jon Thatcher.
