The Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center is in the process of installing a 9/11 exhibit and memorial, which will commemorate the Nassau County firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice during the tragic events of 9/11. The exhibit is due to unveil late August 2011 and they are in need of $75,000 to complete the project.
On July 27, the Scotto Brothers will host a fundraiser at their Fox Hollow catering facility in Woodbury in an effort to raise money to fund this project. The theme of the event is ‘Casino Night’ and attendees will receive food, drinks and fun where all casino money converts to raffle tickets for a chance at winning great prizes. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Museum’s memorial exhibit. Sponsorship and journal opportunities are available.
The Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center is an interactive facility located in Garden City where individuals, families and groups can experience firsthand the proud tradition of firefighting in our communities. Visitors can trace the history of firefighting in Nassau County with hands-on exhibits that feature antique and contemporary fire apparatus and gear.
