LAWTON, Okla._The Valley View Volunteer Fire Department is getting ready for their third annual chili dinner fundraiser and auction.
The department is hosting the annual chili dinner on Saturday, November 14, from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Lawton Rangers Clubhouse, which is a half-mile south of Highway 7 on Southeast 60th Street in Lawton.
In addition to the dinner and silent auction, they will also have a raffle. Raffle tickets are $5 each for a chance to walk away with an AR-15 rifle, Big Green Egg smoker/grill or a 20-quart Yeti hopper/bag cooler. The first ticket drawn gets the choice of the prize. The raffle drawing and silent auction ends at 3:30 p.m.
Admission is strictly through donation.
Some of the money raised during the event will go towards the department's operating costs, but a large chunk will be put toward the construction of a new fire station. The fire department already has land just west of the current station and they hope to begin construction soon.
The Valley View Volunteer Fire Department is hoping for a good turnout to get the construction process started.
