The Kenton Firefighters Local Union 2648 held their second annual golf scramble Saturday. The scramble attracted 27 teams in total, filling up the course.
Firefighter Tate Peterson explains what the funds will be used for.
“We are very involved with the community with fire prevention, we are also involved with raising money for breast cancer. We’ve also been using the money to donate to other firefighters who are in need.”
Peterson estimates that the scramble raised approximately $5,000. Part of those funds go to fire prevention week programming for elementary school students.
“Every year during fire prevention week we go and do poster contests. In the past we have also done Firefighter Phil. We’re going to start doing more and be more involved with [fire prevention week].”
The Union is selling breast cancer awareness t-shirts through the end of the month. If you are interested, Peterson asks you to go to the fire station, or to call (419) 673-1235.
