Dear Fire Fighter Supporters:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who is supporting us through the purchase of ticket/vouchers to our family oriented events. Please be assured that our firefighters and the community they serve will benefit from your support.
Our members are employed by the city of Hendersonville. Our organization represents the Hendersonville Firefighters Association and operates as a separated entity separate from the city.
We are not a charity but a licensed non-profit Professional Organization. Therefore your ticket/voucher purchase is not tax deductible as a charitable contribution on your federal income tax.
It is because of your support that we are able to carry on with the many outstanding programs. Once again we offer you our deepest appreciation.
Jeffrey S. Bush, President
