Fire Engine Red Fundraiser for Paradise

Paradise Fire Protection District’s
Fire Engine Red Fundraiser

Staffed entirely by volunteers, the Paradise Volunteer Fire Department takes pride in the selflessness and dedication of its members, all of who play a vital role in the safety of our communities. Of the 25,000 volunteer firefighters currently serving in California, 15 volunteer firefighters serve Paradise Fire Protection District. “When it comes to fire and emergency preparedness, we need to ensure our volunteer firefighters have the right equipment,” said Board Chair, Ann Klinefelter. “We need your help to protect the residents and visitors in our communities”.

Join your friends and neighbors on Saturday, June 6, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Hidden Creek Ranch in West Bishop for Paradise Fire Protection District’s First Annual Fire Engine Red Fundraiser with the goal to match funds for a 50/50 grant through the Cal Fire Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant Program to purchase new wild land fire fighting equipment.

“We are very excited about this special evening featuring wine tasting by Eberle Vineyard, Mastro Scheidt Family Cellars, and Shadow Ranch Winery; beer tasting by Mountain Rambler Brewery; appetizers and desserts by Classy Cowgirl Catering; and live music by Idle Hands,” she said.

There will be many fabulous prizes in the Silent Auction and Raffle including fine art photography from Galen Rowell and Vern Clevenger, a 6-litre bottle of Eberle Reserve Cabernet, a Winston Fly Rod, a hand crafted quilt by Paradise’s own Donna McAuley, a La-Z-Boy Reclining Rocking Chair from Fendon’s Furniture, rounds of golf at Sierra Star Golf Club and Bishop Country Club just to name a few.

Event tickets are limited and cost $60 each. Raffle Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20.

Reserve your tickets at Spellbinder Books in Bishop, Mammoth Lakes Foundation in Mammoth, or Tom’s Place.
