The Cyrkle, reunited after 50 years (“Red Rubber Ball”, “Turn Down Day”),
The Skyliners, Emil Stucchio & The Classics, Vito Picone & The Elegants, and special guest appearance by Chris Ruggiero join us to rock and raise money for Operation Wounded Warrior, a charitable endeavor of the Nassau County Volunteer Firefighters. Call 516-587-7187 for tickets.
NCFF-OWW is based in Nassau County and has no affiliation with the Wounded Warrior Project.
The firefighters raise funds through numerous events and fundraisers hosted by local Nassau County fire departments and other local civic organizations. These funds are then used to help wounded warriors receiving treatment in hospitals in Bethesda, Fort Bragg and Camp Lejuene as well as here on Long Island.
Recent efforts by NCFF-OWW include purchasing exercise equipment for a Lakeview US Army Sergeant, assisting in the building of seven homes for the wounded returning to Long Island, as well as giving ongoing support to wounded warriors receiving treatment at the Northport VA Hospital.
From NCFF-OWW: “We are volunteer firefighters dedicated to helping our wounded warriors who have sacrificed for all of us. None of us receive any salary or other compensation and approximately 90-95% of the funds are spent on the wounded and their families. The remaining funds are used for administrative expenses including flyers and posters for individual fundraisers, website upkeep and expenses related to our annual convoys to Bethesda, Fort Bragg and Camp Lejuene.”
