This first fundraiser will be a chicken dinner take-out event held at Lighthouse Lanes from noon – 5 p.m.

Dinners will include half chicken, salt potatoes, baked beans and a roll – packaged for pickup.

Free delivery will be available for three or more dinners purchased in the Oswego/Scriba area.

Tickets are $10 and all proceeds will go to the VOW Foundation to be used for education and advocating about synthetic drugs.

Four members of the VOW Foundation board of directors made a trip to Albany in March to advocate for the proposed legislation regarding synthetic drugs, A.6971/S.5401.

Synthetic drugs continue to be a problem in Oswego County and more educational events are being planned for this year.

For tickets please contact Woolson at 315-402-6119 or event chair, Karen Perwitz, at 315-256-3455.
