Hosted by Dick McKeeby, the event is sponsored by the Bon Secours Community Hospital Foundation, the Port Jervis Fire Department, Double M Vending and the Erie Hotel & Restaurant. The $50 ticket price includes hors d’oeuvres, a sit-down dinner and entertainment by The YesterDaze and Rich Wilson. A cash bar will be available.

Tickets can also be picked up at the Medicine Shoppe, 15 Jersey Avenue, Port Jervis. “We’re urging local businesses and organizations to sponsor tables at the event,” McKeeby said. “A table of eight - which includes dinner and a great show - is going for a $1,000 sponsorship. We’re also looking for $500 event night sponsors. This will be great exposure for any business or organization.” To become a sponsor, call McKeeby at 914-850-0625.
