Chicks for Charity hosted a fundraiser in Lewes to benefit the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund.

Chicks for Charity aided residents of Sussex County beginning with their first dinner in July 2010. They have helped community resource agencies that aid kids, families, the elderly, abandoned animals and the underserved.

The Sept. 18 dinner included silent and Chinese auctions and a raffle that raised $1,628 for the fund that assists Delaware's honorably discharged veterans in financial emergency. The Veterans Trust Fund provides one-time hand up grants to qualified veterans and has prevented cutoff of utilities, repossessions, evictions and even put food on the table.
