Events are the backbone of two of Shield 23 Foundation's Objectives: Fundraising and Awareness. We aim to engage in many ways, as evident by these prior Events: a Fall Social & Gift Basket Raffle; Restaurant Proceed Events; Third-party Fundraisers designating S23F as Beneficiary, and 50/50 Raffles. Presentations to Fire Departments and Unions; Fire Service-related Conventions and Events; Info Tables & Media Interviews, and Community Events.
Then the year 2020 saw the arrival and impact of Covid-19. Like many NFPs our Fundraising efforts were severly affected. As we pivot and adapt to how to raise funds in the current climate, and plan our next Events, we do so with the knowledge that Firefighters/Paramedics don't rest, and unfortunately, neither does Cancer.
Check back here often for announcements of upcoming Events and activities that we are either hosting or are grateful to be a part of!
Reminder that Members are notified in advance of all upcoming News, Events, Early Registration, etc. Consider becoming a member today!
Tammie Pullin Memorial Golf Outing
September 10 @ 11:00 am
The Algonquin- Lake In The Hills Firefighters’ Local Union #3985, are raising money this year for their Benelovent Fund. This fund was established for Firefighters and Paramedics and their families in times of need and also supports our local community fundraisers. The funds each year support the Tammie Pullin Memorial Scholarship Fund a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating student of HD Jacobs High School that is attending an accredited school or certification program for the purposes of joining the fire or emergency medical services field. This year, the fundraisers proceeds will benefit Shield 23 Foundation.
