The Griffith Fire Department is proud to announce we will be hosting our annual Firefighters Dance and Raffle Saturday July 12th from 6:00 PM to Midnight at Griffith Fire Department Station 1 (130 N. Lafayette St.). The Relics ( are back by popular demand again this year to entertain us with all the greatest tunes from the 60s and 70s. It wouldnt be a party without a fully stocked beer garden and a smokin hot grill; so firefighters will be serving up plenty of burgers, brats, dogs, and chicken, and pouring ice cold beer all night long.

The Griffith Fire Department Dance and Raffle is unique in that it is an all ages event that allows our guests to enjoy all of the entertainment whether in or out of the beer garden. Weve also kept our prices under control so the whole family can come out and enjoy the party. Tickets are available at the door for $2.50 or you can contact Deputy Chief Hill at 219-545-2014 for tickets. Each $2.50 ticket provides admission to the event as well as a chance to win one of three prizes in our cash raffle. Winners need not be present. All proceeds go directly to the Griffith Fire Department to be used as matching funds necessary for Federal, State, and local grants, to purchase non-budgeted firefighting equipment, and to maintain our fire prevention programs.
