The Firemen's Ball was started years ago when a couple of talented musicians who love Ocracoke gathered to play music and raise some money for a good cause. Since then the original group (The Dune Dogs) out of Raleigh, NC, with the help of local band The Ocracoke Rockers, have come together every year to make this fundraiser a huge success.

Not only is it a good time, it is an important fundraiser for the fire department. Thanks to the continued support of sponsors, donors and volunteers, last year’s ball was again very successful. Together it raised $76,220 – and netted after expenses over $68,000 for the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department Building Fund!
Come on out to the Community Center on Saturday, and help support our Volunteer Fire Department.
