Erie County Legislator John J. Mills announces that this year’s North Collins Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser will feature a performance by “In Jest” at 6 p.m. The library’s Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser will be held from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, June 26 at the library, 2095 School Street, North Collins.
“In Jest” features Nels Ross and his comedy variety show showcasing incredible juggling and edge-of-your-seat stunts. The event will also include a bake sale from 4 to 7 p.m.
“Last year was North Collins’ first Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser and it was a huge success. This year I am anticipating we’ll break last year’s record and raise even more for the library. Please plan to stop by, it will be a wonderful evening of great food, people and entertainment,” said Legislator Mills. “So far this year’s events in Collins and Boston were outstanding and I expect each of the libraries to do very well thanks to the support of the community.”
