On Thursday, June 23rd and Friday, June 24th 2011, the dedicated firefighters of San Gabriel Local 2197 joined together with boots in hand at the intersection of Las Tunas Dr. and Del Mar Ave, as they kicked off their 2nd annual Fill-the-Boot fundraising campaign for children and adults living with muscular dystrophy. The firefighters braved the heat and filled the boot at the intersection from 9 a.m. -4 p.m. both days. Their goal was to raise $4,800 total and instead they went above and beyond to raise an astonishing $6,000! Many thanks go out to Chris Fetner, our MDA coordinator, he not only organized a successful event, but his enthusiasm was encouraging to all who participated. In addition, thank you to the generous restaurants Subway and Shakey’s Pizza for being our event lunch sponsors. Thank you again, San Gabriel Fire Fighters, for your efforts to help our local families, we appreciate all that your do for MDA and the communities you serve.
