Volunteer Ambulance Corps Hosts Pasta Night Fundraiser

The Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association lends its support and encouragement to the Woodhaven Richmond Hill Volunteer Ambulance Corps, which has found itself in dire financial straits. The WRBA encourages residents to attend a “pasta night” fundraiser hosted by the Volunteer Ambulance Corps on Sunday, December 13.

The Volunteer Ambulance Corps, which was started in 1965, has seen some of its major income sources slashed in the past year. As a result, the organization is now having difficulty paying the utilities at its headquarters, located at 78-15 Jamaica Avenue.

The pasta night will feature all-you-can-eat pasta, salad, dessert, and coffee, as well as a D.J., karaoke, and 50/50 raffles. It will occur from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. at the Ambulance Corp’s headquarters. Tickets are $15 per person.

“The Volunteer Ambulance Corps has long served the people of Woodhaven,” said WRBA President Vance Barbour. “During these difficult times, it’s important to support organizations like this one, which has done so much. The pasta night is a way to enjoy a great meal and support a great cause at the same time.”

The Volunteer Ambulance Corps’s headquarters has been the location of the WRBA’s meetings, which has strengthened the ties between the two organizations.
