2nd Annual Fireman’s Ball with a Humboldt Twist! – Tickets On Sale Now

Enjoy an evening of dressing up, dining at the Benbow Historic Inn and dancing to the sound of Twango MaCallan!

The Southern Humboldt Chamber of Commerce and The Benbow Historic Inn would like to recognize our local VOLUNTEER fire fighters and rescue teams for all the hard work and effort each organization puts forth into helping keep our community safe.  Fighting fires, saving lives and keeping the greater area of Southern Humboldt out of harm’s way is a tough job and requires countless hours and many hands.

The Chamber and the Benbow Historic Inn would like to show our appreciation and gratitude by bringing back the 2nd Annual Fireman’s Ball with a Humboldt Twist! This Annual event will be taking place this year on Friday, May 12th, 2023 and is a fundraising event geared toward helping raise monies that will go toward one chosen Southern Humboldt Fire Department at the end of the evening.

Here’s how it works:

All local Southern Humboldt fire departments, rescue organizations, community members and extended fire departments outside of Southern Humboldt are invited!

Each Southern Humboldt Fire Department that attends will be able to put the name of their department/organization into a hat. One winner will be drawn from the hat at the end of the evening, taking home the proceeds.

We are proud to announce that Supervisor Michelle Bushnell will be drawing this year’s winner.

Two Ways To Purchase Tickets:

  1. Tickets are on sale now at $50.00/person and are available at The Chamber office located at 782 Redwood Drive in Garberville
  2. Or through Eventbrite by following this link: https://tinyurl.com/ykt8s3hw

$10.00 from each ticket will be put into a pot that will be going toward the winning department/organization at the end of the night.

There will be different raffles held during this event and 100% of the proceeds made from each raffle will go into the pot for the winner.

There will also be a couple of hot ticket items that will be announced that evening, so be sure to bring your wallets for a chance to win something great! 100% of the proceeds made on these hot ticket items will be put into the pot for the winner!
