New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Reinforcing it’s commitment to honor fallen heroes & recognize the sacrifice made everyday, Adam’s Angels is proud to present Salute 2010. On Thursday, September 23, 2010, the 5th Annual Salute will raise crucial funds for The John Bellew Fund & The Chris Engeldrum FDNY VFW, and will be taking place at The Saloon NYC. The Saloon NYC is located at 1584 York Avenue (between 83rd & 84th) and will run from 7:00pm-11:00pm.
Originally created in memory of Lt. Bellew to be a scholarship fund for the children of members of the FDNY, The John Bellew Memorial Fund has extended its purpose to also provide financial assistance to the families of members of the FDNY and NYPD who have suffered non-line of duty deaths. The SSGT Chris Engeldrum FDNY Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #12033 is actively helping American military members who have been wounded in the War on Terror.
"We are so happy to be hosting Salute 2010 with the FDNY VFW for the third year in a row. Providing assistance to wounded American military members has always been a priority for Adam's Angels. This year, we're also teaming up with the John Bellew Fund. The money they raise through this event will be allocated for the families of firefighters and police officers who die while not on duty. We feel this is incredibly important as those families are not entitled to full line of duty death benefits and can use all the support we can give them”
The night will feature live music by the critically acclaimed band Ready in 10, DJ Bubba Guitar, discounted beverages, raffles and more! Tickets are available on the Adam’s Angels Web site via Paypal, can be purchased from any of the host committee members, or by emailing Salute2FF(at)aol.com.
About Adam’s Angels:
Adam’s Angels is a completely volunteer- driven program in memory of firefighter Adam David Rand (FDNY, Squad 288 & Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department), who became an angel on September 11, 2001 while saving others.
We work tirelessly to help promote, advocate and raise funds for worthwhile causes in Adam’s name. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have never and will never directly accept donations, and yet we still have been able to build a strong presence in the world without any overhead expenses.
Adam’s Angels is a program, not a 501c3, and feel we are better served helping select non-profit charities achieve their goals. This is why when you attend an event hosted by Adam’s Angels, you make your check out to the 501c3 non-profit organization you wish to support (or pay online directly through that 501c3 non-profit organization’s bank account), not Adam’s Angels.
