The fundraiser will specifically benefit families of 16 guardsmen from the Delta Company 2nd Battalion 124th Infantry based at the Eustis Armory, which recently received notice they were being deployed to Afghanistan.
"I can't think of a better way to spend a Tuesday afternoon then supporting the men and women that serve to protect our country's freedoms," Commissioner Stivender said. "I encourage all Lake County residents and visitors to turn out for this worthy cause."
