The Hall of Flame Charity Calendar has been a major VFCS fundraiser for 26 years, and has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars for the VFCS, CKNW Orphan’s Fund, and the BCPFFA Burn Fund. Firefighters from many of the Lower Mainland Fire Departments participate in this tongue-in-cheek calendar, which plays on old stereotypes for a good cause!
Local 18 was pleased to donate $50,000 to assist in a room renovation at the Cancer Lodge in Vancouver in honour of cancer surviver Vancouver Firefighter, Les Whyte. We were proud to be a part of the project which was designed to commit to the Children and Citizens of British Columbia the re-building of a facility which will be a supportive place to stay while undergoing cancer treatment.
Over the past 26 years, the Vancouver Firefighters have raised over $1,000,000 for these charities. To all that have given their support thank you.
