Annual Events

Soup's on!

Soup's On supper is our second largest fundraiser and always proves to be a sell out event. Typically, this is held during the winter month's on a Saturday evening. The proceeds from this popular event benefits the Community Aid Fund.

Bristol Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship

Each year, the Ladies Auxiliary awards a $2,000 scholarship to a son or daughter of a member of the Bristol Fire Department. The Ladies Auxiliary Bristol Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship was established to provide a scholarship to a resident of Bristol who is a graduating senior of an accredited high school to attend any degree-conferring post-secondary educational institution.The scholarship is administered by the Rhode Island Foundation.


Each year, the Auxiliary helps a local family, by providing assistance in the form of gifts and other necessities during the holiday season. For more information or to nominate a family, email the Auxiliary.

Holiday Dinner

Each year, the auxiliary prepares a holiday dinner for all of the Bristol Fire Department stations as a way to thank them for their dedicated service throughout the year. 

Kick Off to Christmas

The largest event the auxiliary hosts each year is the kickoff to Christmas fundraiser. Typically held the Saturday after thanksgiving, the event combines fun with a sense of community by collecting unwrapped new toys, new and gently used winter clothing, gift cards, and monetary donations. Items collected are distributed to families within the community during the holiday season.
