A local fundraiser strives to raise money for fallen firefighters and their families.
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation will host their 5th Annual Greater Cincinnati Golf Tournament on Friday to benefit the cause. It is the region's only golf tournament that benefits the families and survivors of the brave men and women lost serving their community.
For the fifth consecutive year, the event will be held at Rising Star Casino and Resort. Participants can choose from two start tomes: 8:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
For the registration fee of $90, each golfer will receive 18 holes of golf, complimentary food and drinks, discount room pricing and various prizes.
On April 4, 2008, Colerain Township Fire Department suffered the loss of Captain Robin Broxterman and firefighter Brian Schira in a structure fire on Squirrelsnest Lane.
Later that year, the department was approached by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and asked to participate in their fundraising efforts.
Since their conception, the Greater Cincinnati chapter has been able to raise over $36,000 for the cause.
