February 12, 2024

The Cape Henlopen Elks Lodge 2540 recently donated $1,000 to the third annual Rally For Our First Responders, joining the gold sponsorship tier.

The lodge has been supporting this fundraiser since its inception in 2022, held in the spirit of giving back and thanking local emergency responders. This year’s rally will take place from noon to 6 p.m., Saturday, June 1, at Hudson Fields, Milton. The rain date is Sunday, June 2.

Attractions include live music, vendors, food trucks, car show, petting zoo, first responder vehicles and demonstrations, and much more.

Proceeds will go toward local nonprofit beneficiaries, to include the Sussex County Paramedic Association, Delaware C.O.P.S., Crime Stoppers, Beebe Medical Foundation and many local fire departments.

Organizers are still seeking sponsorships, and ticket sales are ongoing. Tickets are $10 per person, with those ages 12 and under admitted free. VIP tickets are available at $20. For sponsorship, tickets and more information, email and find Rally For Our First Responders on Facebook.

Cape Henlopen Elks urge the community to join them in showing appreciation for firefighters, paramedics, sheriffs, deputies and police officers who, at a moment's notice, are there to lend a hand while putting their own safety at risk.
