West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A fundraiser is raising money for military families.

The 9th annual " Remembering Our Serving Soldiers," is sponsored by the West Fargo VFW. Every year, it has a silent auction and other events like bingo to help families.

There are hundreds of items in the auction, all donated by people in the community.

Lt. Bob Ruud, member of the ND National Guard 141st, says, "I have been involved in it for the last several years, and they have donated over 10 thousand dollars each year and that is split up between nine or ten different support groups for families for local Army, Airforce, Navy groups here in Fargo."

The highlight of the event is a memorial program to honor North Dakotans who have lost their lives in the War on Terror.
