The second annual Decorah Volunteer Fire Department gala is Friday, Feb. 7, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Toppling Goliath Brewing Company in Decorah.
The event features live and silent auctions, raffle prizes, brewery tours, hors d'oeuvres and world-class beer.
Gala proceeds will benefit the Decorah Volunteer Fire Department and will contribute to the purchase of a flat bottom jet drive river rescue boat with trailer.
In addition, the proceeds from one designated live auction item -- yet to be determined -- will be invested in an endowment fund. The interest from this endowment fund may be used for upkeep of the Department’s training facility or other regular maintenance needs.

A limited number of tickets are on sale now at the Decorah Fire Department.
Tickets are $20 each. A ticket provides access to the event, a bidder number for raffles and live and silent auction items, one free pint pour, unlimited appetizers and entry into a Toppling Goliath prize drawing.
The Toppling Goliath kitchen will close to the general public at 5 p.m. Feb. 7 and the TG taproom will close to the general public at 6 p.m. A ticket will be required after 6 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $20 the night of the event.
