2021 Greater Cincinnati Regional NFFF Golf Outing

Thanks to our Event Sponsor Mercy West Hospital

The June 11, 2021 Greater Cincinnati Regional National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Memorial Golf Tournament was an outstanding success. We were able to raise $41,000 for the Foundation this year surpassing our previous best year by $16,000! Our thanks to the 280 golfers, 50 volunteers, Rising Sun Casino staff and family and friends who lost loved ones in the line of duty.

The National Fallen Firefighters lost approximately $600,000 dollars in donations last year due to the cancellation of most fundraising events, such as the Greater Cincinnati Regional National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament. Local fundraising efforts make up a significant portion of the Foundation’s yearly budget. Although the Foundation was founded by an act of Congress, no funds were appropriated to maintain the programs. The foundation relies on the generosity of corporate and individual sponsors.

To date there have been 164 Covid-19 Line of Duty Deaths, 111 fire and 53 EMS.
In addition, 103 Firefighters died in the line of duty (non covid) in 2019 and 86 Firefighters died in the line of duty (non covid) in 2020.

Your contributions are vitally important to maintaining the assistance surviving families require after a loved one has died. To see what the Foundation does to help these families visit www.firehero.org
