2nd Annual Monster Mash Fundraiser
02/21/17 - Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union
I started this to help out the locals in the downriver area. We benefit so many good causes throughout the year that there really isn't anything for the guys. The money earned can be spent on anything(groceries) or just something they need or having been wanting for their house. Every year, a new local or firehouse will be drawn to receive the proceeds. Also I have the link down below for the Facebook group page that has even more information, the link to buy tickets and all about the hotel and its discounted prices. Hope to see you there, it's a great time! Fraternally, James Bishop 734-765-7097
