The fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Celtic Cottage Pub, 608 Second Ave., Long Branch.
There will be food and drink specials, live music and a 50/50 raffle. A $25 donation is required for entry, and all proceeds will be given to first responders who are in need after Hurricane Sandy.
Tickets are available in advance or at the door. To reserve a ticket at the door, contact Cooper at 732-496-1427 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
