Paradise FD holding Fundraiser June 6th
Paradise Fire Protection District is holding their First Fire Engine Red Fundraiser Saturday, June 6, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Hidden Creek Ranch, Bishop.
Seeing a need to augment funding to purchase necessary life saving tools, Paradise Fire Protection District is stepping up to the plate.
The recent Round Fire made very apparent the District’s vulnerability to wild fires, especially after four years of drought. Ann Klinefelter said, “We desperately need new wild land firefighting equipment. We are applying for a 50/50 matching grant through the Cal Fire Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant Program to purchase approximately $20,000 worth of equipment. “ And she added, “To raise our portion of the funds, the PFPD Board is holding the First Annual Fire Engine Red Fundraiser on June 6, 2015. Our goal is to raise $10,000, while bringing our community together for an evening of fun and good cheer. We are asking for your help!”
Join your friends and neighbors for a 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; live music by Idle Hands; and a chance to win fabulous prizes in the Silent Auction and Raffle.
