Sayville Veterans of Foreign War Post 433 held its second annual Aunt Barbara Tupperware Party Fundraiser on Saturday March 31. We know a Tupperware Party is not something you normally expect from a VFW Post to host, but then again, the 433 has never been known for doing what’s expected.
“Aunt Barbara” is the largest seller of Tupperware in North America and to say she is entertaining would be an understatement. We’re happy to announce that the event was a huge success with over 100 women, and a few brave men attending. A Chinese Auction was also held at the Party and participants had 22 items on which to bid. From a basket of fine wines, to a bundle of “little boy toys”, we had it
all. Many Post members showed up to “help” with the arrangements and make sure everything went according to plan. As it turned out, everybody had a great time, no matter their purpose in attending, and we raised quite a bit of money at the same time. As with all of our fundraising activities all proceeds will go to support our work with hospitalized, disabled and homeless veterans, as well as active duty military personnel. Post 433 is grateful for the support we get from the local community and appreciate everyone who attended and contributed to the event. We’d like to give special thanks to Past Post Commander Joe White for organizing the event and to our many friends and supporters that donated gifts for the auction. They include Butera’s Restaurant, Crickets Restaurant, Top Hat Barbers, Divinity Salon, Team White from Prudential Douglas Elliman Realtors, J&J Wines and Spirits, Kathryn’s Boutique, and local artist Margaret Henning, all from Sayville; Veteran’s Electric from Islip and Play It Again Sports of Ronkonkoma.
