Ottumwa, Iowa — Heartland residents can have fun for a good cause.
Ottumwa’s fire department will host the 85th annual Fireman’s Ball on Friday, November 16.
The event will help fund the Safety Fun Program which teaches children about fire safety.
The ball will be held at Hotel Ottumwa and doors will open at 7 p.m. There will be cocktails and live music.
Those who attend will also have the opportunity to win some prizes.
"We’ve had large screen TV’s, we’ve had large prizes for the giveaway. Usually, you’ve got a good chance of winning. [You] can go away with a lot of prizes and, of course, your money goes to a very good cause," said Bill Keith, Ottumwa Fire Department Captain.
Tickets will be available for purchase before the ball and at the doors the night of the event.
