Post 184 benefit dinner raises over $4,000 for building fund


A Wildwood Summer Benefit Dinner was hosted at the Post on July 20; thanks to the attendees and donors, the event raised $4,300 towards the building repairs needed at the Post...


American Legion Post 184 is happy to announce the success of A Wildwood Summer Benefit Dinner that took place this past Saturday. From table and ticket sales, Chinese auction and 50/50 revenue, and donations from the community, the benefit dinner raised a total of $4,300. Proceeds of the event will benefit the building fund and be used to make repairs to the Post in the fall. The revenue makes a good start to repairs, although many more funds are needed.

“The event was different than what we had done before,” said Commander Harry Weimar. “I hope the community enjoyed the next level of entertainment provided and will return for more of our events in the future.”

Planning of the event focused on a specific Wildwood theme, with area restaurants donating all of the food. Ten piece band Philly Heart and Soul was selected to perform, which was a step up from previous events at the Post. The Chinese auction focused on baskets targeting downtown, the boardwalk, entertainment and more packed with value that drew an increase in revenue over previous events. 

“We are moving in a new direction with both our events and our membership initiatives. We are focusing on organization,” said Weimar. “The goal is to engage our members so our Post can continue serving the community, and offer opportunities for Wildwood residents and visitors to enjoy.”

Next Post 184 will host Comedy Night on July 25th with Eric Potts and Thomas Mongelli, the final Comedy Night will be on August 8th with Mike Eagan and Noah Houlihan, and the Legion Riders Pig Roast will take place on September 7th.

Businesses that donated to the event are thanked for their support, and Post 184 asks the community to visit the businesses to show gratitude for supporting the veterans:
