http://www.fdnycolumbia.com/ The FDNY Columbia Association started in 1934 by firefighters of Italian descent . We are a non-profit (501-3c) organization, made up of FDNY Firefigthers and EMS. Our goal is to encourage FDNY members to be proud of their Italian heritage. Each year we have a strong contingency that march in the Columbus Day Parade. Whether we're on duty or off duty, we are always here to answer calls for help.
We promote better education for our children by awarding scholarships each year. We are also very active in promoting our Italian heritage and culture. Our pride in being FDNY members always shines through each year when we hold charitable events for our scholarship fund.
We ran a Bocce Tournament to raise money for the scholarship fund the last two years. Funding is needed to help run this event. Turnouts have grown in our first two years. We receive up to 100 contestants for our event held in June at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow NY. Everyone donates generously, but funds are still needed for food , permits and awards for the event.
The scholarships are given to the children annually at our dinner dance held in June. The awards are distributed to boys and girls that will be attending high school and college in the fall of that year. Please help make this event a success..
All donations are greatly appreciated and will help keep the dream of the FDNY Columbia Association alive. For more information, please visit our website above or see our story on page 5 of our newsletter at http://www.fdnycolumbia.com/voce/2012_3.pdf
Donate and receive an award or just make a donation.
