Proceeds from the event will be split between the Chad Spicer Memorial Foundation, the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department and the Possum Point Players.

The evening will feature a performance of the Anne Nelson play The Guys.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the community theatre off U.S. 113 just south of the Rt. 9 intersection.

The show features Milton residents James Keegan and Anne Colwell and is directed by Nina Galerstein.

The Guys is the story of a FDNY captain who lost eight men in the collapse of the World Trade Center and the editor who helps him prepare the eulogies he must deliver.

The play runs approximately one hour and 15 minutes and will be followed by a reception with light hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and a cash bar.

Tickets are $40 each and include a coupon for a free drink which can be used either before or after the play.

A raffle is planned, as is a fire boot for additional donations.

There will be space made available for the Chad Spicer Memorial Foundation and the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department to display materials that relate to their mission. For tickets or more information, contact Dawn Conaway at office@possumpointplayers.org or 856-3460.
