WAKE FOREST — The Wake Forest American Legion Auxiliary will be the beneficiary of Sunday’s Quarter Frenzy in the Mill Room of the Factory at 1839 S. Main Street.
The Quarter Frenzy, which begins at 3:30 p.m., is a fun-filled cross between an auction, a raffle, a charity fundraiser and a home party. Members of the Auxiliary and local direct sales vendors will auction off new items for one to four quarters per bid.
Support the Auxiliary and perhaps go home with valuable prizes. Bring a roll or two of quarters for bidding. Due to gaming laws no one under 18 can be admitted. Additional information about the Quarter Frenzy is available on Facebook, tinyurl.com/WFAmLegAuxQuarterFrenzy.
In conjunction with the Quarter Frenzy, a food drive to benefit the USO at Raleigh/Durham Airport will be held. Items needed by the USO are coffee K cups, individually packaged snacks (chips, cookies, crackers, beef jerky, etc.), disposable dinnerware (plates, cups, utensils), lip balm, chewing gum, and puzzle books. For each item donated, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize.
The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. It was founded as a non-profit in 1919.
The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 187 in Wake Forest has been serving military personnel, their families and community since 2009. Their mission is to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, active military and their families both at home and abroad.
Proceeds from their projects have been used to benefit the Airborne Attic, Semper Fi Fund, Warrior Transition Battalion and Fisher House at military bases in North Carolina as well as contributed to Military Missions in Action, the USO at Raleigh Durham Airport and current and former service members in Wake Forest and the surrounding communities.
On the second Sunday of every month, Auxiliary members can be found serving pancakes at the American Legion Post 187 pancake breakfast at 225 E. Holding Avenue, Wake Forest.
It’s all you can eat for just $5 per person with children under 12 free of charge.
If you would like additional information about the American Legion Auxiliary, please contact our President, Deb Hickman at 919-556-3619 or email@example.com.
Meetings are held the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m.
