Fundraiser held in Luzerne County to purchase protective vests

The Wyoming Area Kiwanis Club hosted a fundraiser to help purchase protective vests for first responders in the Wyoming Area.

EXETER, Pa. — Invest in a vest was the phrase that hopefully paid off in Luzerne County.

It was a packed house at Sabatini's Bottle Shop in Exeter.

The Wyoming Area Kiwanis Club hosted a fundraiser at the spot in Luzerne County on Thursday night to help purchase protective vests for first responders in the Wyoming area.

Before the fundraiser, the club had raised enough money to buy 61 vests.

Members think the crowd that came out will help them reach their goal of 70 vests.
