Fountaine Fundraiser Set For Next Month


A fundraiser for the Fountaine family, who lost their Northampton home and most of their possessions in a fire in June, will take place at the Riverhead Polish Hall on Marcy Avenue next month.

The event will run from 7 until 11 p.m. on Friday, October 24. Community members are invited to enjoy a dinner and Chinese auction. The doors open at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $50 each and include dinner and a sheet of tickets for the auction.

Tracey and Lyn Fountaine, and their three daughters—Cherelle, Nia and Amberlyn—are still recovering from the blaze. Mr. Fountaine suffered first- and second-degree burns in the fire, injuries that kept him hospitalized for nearly a week. He has since recovered and returned to work, but the family is still in need of support, according to organizers.

For tickets or more information, please call Gundula Summerlin at (631) 697-0424, Joyce Russell at (631) 384-8893, or Robin Berkeley at (631) 655-5631.
