'Dining for Dollars' fundraiser helping seniors

Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Faith in Action held its 'Dining for Dollars' fundraiser Thursday night at the Polish Community Center in Binghamton.

Thursday night's fundraiser included special guest servers such as Broome County Sheriff David Harder, State Senator Fred Akshar, Assembly Woman Donna Lupardo, among others.

Faith in Action has been a part of the Broome County Council of Churches since 1996. It provides non-medical services such as transportation for seniors and more. 

Director of Faith in Action volunteer, Sue Spencer said, "Our program helps the seniors in our community stay independent, because as they get older they are no longer able to drive, or their families no longer live in the area, but they would like to stay in their homes. Our volunteers help them get to the doctors and the grocery store so they can stay healthy and independent," said Spencer.

The event included raffles, a cash bar and live musical entertainment.
