Cinnaminson Fire Department Fundraiser

Benefitting the Tyanna Barre O'Brien Breast Care Comfort Fund

 

Thursday, October 14
12:00 pm - 8:00 pm
SweetWater Bar and Grill, Cinnaminson, NJ

Dine and Donate at SweetWater Bar and Grill! A portion of all sales will be generously donated to our cause. There will also be a silent auction during the event. The department will be offering pink bows to display on your home or business and breast cancer ribbon lapel pins for a $5 donation through the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

 

In support of breast cancer awareness month and in honor of a beloved colleague, members of the Cinnaminson Fire Department raised $1,100 in 2014 and donated it to Virtua Foundation’s Tyanna Barre O’Brien Breast Care Comfort Fund.

For the past three years, members of the department have made it their mission to support local breast cancer patients in honor of Jean Dietrick, the Fire District Business Manager who was diagnosed with breast cancer and is now a survivor of 8 years. Last year, they wore special “supporter” t-shirts throughout October and sold them to the community, along with pins, hats and small stuffed animals of their mascot, Sparky. They hosted a table at the annual Cinnaminson Day and organized a special dinning event at Manny’s Restaurant in Palmyra. 

The gift from the Cinnaminson Fire Department enables Virtua Foundation to provide an extra level of support, comfort and compassion to patients when they need it most. The Breast Care Comfort provides added comfort to patients at Virtua battling breast cancer by providing wigs, scarves, medical devices and even transportation fees when families cannot afford them.

This amazing group of firefighters and friends have donated a total of $4,600 over the last three years and plans are already underway for next year’s efforts.
