ST. MICHAELS — The 36th annual Fireman’s Auction was held Oct. 30 at Awful Arthur’s in St. Michaels. A record $73,125 was raised to benefit the St. Michaels and Tilghman Island fire departments.

More than 100 local residents, small business owners and weekend tourists attended the tented event.

“I am so thankful and proud to have such a great committee who worked together for a significant cause — the local fire departments. We are grateful to so many people who opened up their hearts and wallets to come together for our community,” said Arthur Webb, owner of Awful Arthur’s.

The committee will remain together for next year’s event. For more information or to donate, call event chairman Donna Pierson at 410-822-5866.
