Charity Golf Tournament
We are writing today to ask your support of our annual fundraiser. For the past 7 years members of Nashua Fire Rescue, Local 789 and the Nashua Fireman's Relief Association has organized a golf tournament to benefit the New England Childrens Burn Camp (NECBC). This years tournament is being held June 6, 2002 at Souhegan Woods Golf Club.
The NECBC is a one week cost free summer camp for burn surviving children from 8 - 18 years old. These kids have been burned seriously enough to require hospitalization. The camp is run by an all volunteer staff of doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and firefighter counselors. Last year, two members of the NFR volunteered at the camp. I can go on for pages about the values of the camp to these kids. For some, this is the only place they feel comfortable taking off their shirt to go swimming. NECBC allows these kids to enjoy a true summer camp experience free of ridicule and peer pressure.
We are proud of our affiliation with the camp knowing that 100% of the funds raised actually reach the kids. The only paid person is a secretary. Local area kids have benefited from this camp.
This year, an award winning local Nashua artist Marc Winnat (www.marcwinnat.com)has generously donated an original painting of New York City Fire Department Truck 11. Truck 11 was destroyed on 9 -11. On the day of our tournament, the painting is being presented to members of Truck 11.
