Fireman’s Ball Yeilds Red Hot Profits

The statistics are in and it appears that this year’s Fireman’s Ball in Jackson netted more than twice the profit seen after last year’s ball.  This year’s chairman of the event, James Powell says there were over 1300 who attended the event Saturday night, not only purchasing tickets but bidding on silent and live auction items. When all the proceeds were counted, Powell says the Jackson Volunteer Fire Rescue Association had netted approximately $25,000.  By contrast, he says the Fireman’s Ball in 2012 made a profit of $12,000.  Powell says the increase this year is very welcome since the department has some major purchase to make including a new cardiac monitor and a new fire engine.  Powell says Peyton Jennings of Jackson won this year’s door prize which was an entire grass-fed buffalo and a freezer to keep it in.
