Friends and neighbors of Tammy and Rich Seamon, who lost everything in a fire earlier this month, are holding a fundraiser to help them start to rebuild their lives on January 30th from 2-6 PM at VFW Post #2338, 752 US Highway 20, West Winfield.

There will be a Chinese auction with over 100 gift baskets, raffles, door prizes, food, drinks and entertainment with BoCNY, and DJ Aaron Davis. Tickets are $10.00 per person, $15.00 per couple and $20.00 for a family.

The Seamon’s, known in West Winfield and surrounding areas as a very giving and helpful family had minimal insurance. Tammy works at Mount Markham School in the cafeteria and also as a bus driver. Her husband Rich is disabled. Their daughter Kalya is a senior at Mount Markham, and they also have a son Matthew.

This family lost everything in a morning fire that started in the kitchen of their home on January 4. When the fire department received the call, the house was already fully engulfed and was beyond saving anything including two family dogs and their puppies.
