On Tuesday the IronPigs will be giving away all the essentials for a funeral service on Celebration of Life Night presented by Reichel Funeral Home. The winner, selected through an essay contest, will receive $7,500 worth of professional services, facilities and a casket from Reichel Funeral Home, a complimentary headstone courtesy of Northampton Memorial Company and a casket spray of flower from Richmar Florist.
