To Whom It May Concern:
We are the Ocoee Professional Fire Fighters. Our group is comprised of approximately forty men and women who are public servants in the Fire Department within the City of Ocoee. Each of us provides a necessary service to our community by working in one of the following positions: Firefighters, Engineers, Lieutenants, Fire Inspectors, EMT’s and Paramedics. The members of our Local are active in many aspects of local life within our community. We consistently participate in charitable activities and fund-raisers throughout the year. We have hosted events, as well as participating in several functions in order to help some of our own members’ families with health challenges. Each year we continue to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association search for a cure for the over one-hundred neuromuscular diseases by conducting our Boot Drive for Jerry’s Kids. There are several other events that we participate in annually such as: March of Dimes, Relay for Life, Big Orange Games, Fully Involved, Seniors First, Saving Young Hearts and several others.
On March 16th 2013, our Local is hosting our 4th annual St Patrick’s Day festival at Bill Breeze Park, 150 N Lakeshore Dr Ocoee FL 34761. The event consist of a chili/Bar-B-Q cook off, corn hole, kids rides and games and some raffle items to be raffled off as well. We will also have live music featuring Burt “Bubba” Wilson, Jeff Howell, Bobby and Critter and Simlecast.
We are actively seeking sponsorship and participants for this worthwhile and entertaining outing. There are several sponsor packages available and we would like to offer you the chance to get involved and help us make this festival a huge success. It is our intent to create a dedicated funding source for local community charities. Proceeds will be given to Building homes for heroes, an organization set up to help Veterans that have been injured in the line of duty. More information can be obtained at http://www.buildinghomesforheroes.org.
With your help, and others like you, we can continue to help the needy in our area to have a better quality of life. We appreciate and thank you for your support in advance.
