A local homeowner’s association raised $875 for the Woodland Beach Volunteer Fire Department (WBVFD) with a special Oktoberfest event held last Friday.
The volunteer fire department has been continually seeking to raise funds to build a new fire station on the corner of Solomons Island Road and Central Avenue.
In partnership with more than 11 local businesses, residents gathered at The Greene Turtle in Edgewater to enjoy food, music, raffle prizes and some pleasant pre-Sandy weather. Even though the event was closed to the public, The Greene Turtle’s outdoor tent was packed with people from 6-9 p.m. last Friday.
With baked goods, coupons and a grand prize of three months worth of homeowner’s association fees paid in full, raffle tickets sold quickly.
Those who donated services and goods to help the local volunteer fire department included:
- Results University/Parisi Speed School
- Sport Clips
- The Greene Turtle
- Harbor East Management Group (The Market)
- Cakes by Rachael
- Kahve Café and Catering
- Bank Annapolis
- True Green
- Colony Liquors
- Complete Landscaping Service
