Valley View VFD hosting 3rd annual chili fundraiser Saturday

LAWTON, Okla._The Valley View Volunteer Fire Department will host their 3rd annual chili fundraiser from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Saturday at the Lawton Rangers Clubhouse on Southeast 60th street.

The dinner will feature a variety of homemade chilies and desserts. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted. The fire captain, who also happens to be our own morning meteorologist Matt DiPirro, says they hope the event shows how much they care about community.

"We really appreciate the support of the community that comes out and has our back and donates to us, and it means a lot because we really enjoy serving the community out here and we really have a lot of passion for helping out everyone in the community and our county and our state," DiPirro said.

The volunteer fire department has outgrown its current fire station and is hoping the fundraiser will help them build a new station. The fundraiser will also feature a silent auction and a raffle for an AR-15 rifle, a Yeti cooler and a Big Green Egg grill and smoker.
