Craig’s Firefighters’ Ball fun funds scholarships

Partiers get into the laidback spirit of the tropics at the 2015 Craig Fire/Rescue luau. This year's event takes place starting at 6 p.m. Saturday at The OP Bar and Grill.

Break out the island attire, Craig Fire/Rescue is hosting the 77th annual Firefighters’ Ball and Hawaiian Luau on Saturday night at The O.P. Bar and Grill, 534 E. Victory Way.

The tropical themed festivities, which are 21 and older, begin at 6 p.m. and last until midnight. Tickets are $10, and will be available at the door.

Attendees are encouraged to wear their most aloha-worthy attire as part of a costume contest, be it a floral shirt and shorts or a grass skirt and coconut brazier. Attractions include music, food, drinks and a limbo contest.

All proceeds go to the Craig Fire/Rescue scholarship fund.

Battalion Chief Troy Hampton said the event raised $3,000 last year and the firefighters hope to hit that mark again this year.

“The money goes to a good cause,” he said, “Plus, it’s a good time.”
