Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
The Ferndale Public Market is pleased to announce its final fundraising barbeque of the season on Saturday, September 14. The community is invited to stop by extended market hours to enjoy hotdogs between 2 and 5 p.m. In turn, the Market is collecting cash or food donations to benefit the Ferndale Food Bank.
"We are hoping for a little late summer sunshine for the barbeque, but rain or shine, we will be serving up hot dogs," said Ferndale Public Market Board member, Eric Kelton. "Anyone who makes a donation, be it cash, check or a can of food will get a free ice cream. Sugar Shack will be bringing their mobile ice cream truck and will be scooping up dessert."
One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the barbeque fundraiser will be donated to the Ferndale Food Bank, serving low-income seniors, neighbors and those in crisis in the Ferndale and Custer areas.
