WILDWOOD – American Legion Post 184 announced the results of A Wildwood Summer Benefit Dinner that took place July 20.
According to a release, from table and ticket sales, Chinese auction and 50/50 revenue, and donations from the community, the benefit dinner raised $4,300.
Proceeds of the event will benefit the building fund and be used to make repairs to the post in the fall. The revenue makes a start to repairs, although more funds are needed.
“The event was different than what we had done before,” stated Commander Harry Weimar. “I hope the community enjoyed the next level of entertainment provided and will return for more of our events in the future.”
Planning focused on a specific Wildwood theme, with area restaurants donating all of the food.
Ten-piece band Philly Heart and Soul was selected to perform, which was a step up from previous events at the post.
“We are moving in a new direction with both our events and our membership initiatives. We are focusing on organization,” stated Weimar. “The goal is to engage our members so our post can continue serving the community, and offer opportunities for Wildwood residents and visitors to enjoy.”
Businesses that donated to the event were thanked for their support, and Post 184 asked the community to visit the businesses to show gratitude for supporting the veterans.
