Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
In its final fundraiser of the season, the Ferndale Public Market hosted a community barbeque on Saturday, September 14. During extended market hours, people stopped by to enjoy hotdogs and in turn, donated roughly 50 pounds of food and 107-dollars cash, all of which is being donated to the Ferndale Food Bank.
"In addition to hot dogs, anyone who donated, received an ice cream from Sugar Shack," said Ferndale Public Market Board member, Eric Kelton. “I want to thank everyone who came out and donated to this very important cause.”
Kelton and volunteers served up 70 hot dogs and Sugar Shack handed out 60 ice creams.
The Ferndale Food Bank serves low-income seniors, neighbors and those in crisis.
