CFSI Will Hold Its Annual Silent Auction at Firehouse Expo

On July 27, 2013, the Congressional Fire Services Institute will hold its annual silent auction at the Firehouse Expo in Baltimore, Maryland.

A popular event among the trade show attendees, the auction takes place at the entrance to the exhibit hall and offers a wide variety of exciting items on which to bid.

Our success in past years is due in large part to the donations we receive from organizations that have benefited from our work on Capitol Hill.

In this spirit, we are reaching out to all National Advisory Council members and asking them for contributions to the Silent Auction.

Entertainment items – this includes tickets to sporting events, shows and vacation packages – are popular among the bidders, as are sports and fire service memorabilia and equipment – such as helmets, flashlights, and rescue tools.

To help us achieve our fundraising goal, we would ask for donated items with a minimum retail value of $75.

In return for your donation CFSI will display a poster with your company’s logo next to the item you have donated.We will also provide to you a Certificate of Recognition for your generous donation.

If your organization would like to make a contribution to the Silent Auction please feel free to give me a call at (202) 371-1277, or e-mail me at

We would appreciate if we could receive donations prior to July 20, 2013. Thanks Again. Sincerely, Brian Goldfeder Special Events Manager Congressional Fire Services Institute 900 2nd St, NE Suite 303 Washington, DC 20002
