First Annual Awards BBQ at the Second Annual Hayward Firefighters Demolition Derby Hosted by San Mateo County Firefighters
Last Year San Mateo County Firefighters had three entries in the Hayward Firefighters ‘Smash for Cash’ Demolition Derby and helped them raise funds for their non-profit. We had a whole lot of fun and at the end of the day we took home the winner’s trophy.
Hayward Firefighters are once again holding their Demolition Derby (discount tickets available at www.haywardfirefighters.org) but this year they have come up with the idea of having the previous year’s winner host a BBQ at the fairgrounds immediately following the Derby to present the new derby champion with the trophy. Hayward has asked San Mateo County and we have agreed to host the awards dinner to benefit our non-profit, the San Mateo County Firefighters Foundation.
Dinner will be available for $10 a meal if you buy your meal online and will be available at the event for $15. The funds raised from your meal will go to the ‘San Mateo County Firefighters Foundation.’ Because of your donation the Foundation will be able to fund our Firefighter Behavioral Health Program in 2019. These funds will aid us in supporting a second ‘Peer Support Class,’ offset the costs of renewing the license with the Firestrong.org website and help pay to create short videos for our members as an outreach to explain to them that it is ok to talk about and seek help for behavioral health issues.
The Awards BBQ will take place immediately following the Demolition Derby at the picnic area adjacent to the track. The Derby last heat should be over by 3 so be prepared to eat by 4pm on November 10th at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
