The Fire & Rescue Department is a 501 (c) (3) Corporation so that every donation and contribution is tax-deductible. This fundraiser is the primary fundraiser for the organization and money raised from this and other fundraisers throughout the year go toward the maintenance and upkeep of the department including the first responders. The fire department operates on annual dues and they receive a small amount of money from city funds, the rest of the operating money comes from fundraisers like this annual event and donations received.
