The Fairfield, Norwalk and Stratford Firefighters, in collaboration with the Fairfield Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation and Stratford Fire Fighters Burn Foundation, will host a wine and beer tasting event at the Trumbull Marriott, 180 Hawley Lane, on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 6 to 10 p.m. The event will benefit the Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital.
“The recent renovations are very important to us and the addition of a Burn Suite for families is a really big deal,” said Bill Hansen, presidents of the Stratford Fire Fighters Burn Foundation. “We hope to continue this annual fundraiser to support the Burn Center for many years to come.”
Tickets for the event are $25, and may be purchased at the door or by emailing FFFCF@iaff.org or contacting the Fairfield Fire Fighters Charitable Foundation on Facebook; $50 table sponsorships are also still available.
“We’re looking forward to joining our Stratford and Norwalk brothers and sisters in helping out the Burn Center with this,” said Bob Smith, Fairfield Fire Fighters Association president.
