The 9th Annual National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Golf Tournament
On Monday, June 22nd, Hardison & Cochran was one of the proud sponsors of the 9th Annual Raleigh Area NFFF Golf Tournament held by the The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The tournament took place at 10:00 AM at the beautiful Bentwinds Country Club in Fuquay-Varina. The NFFF, based in Maryland, is a non-profit organization created by the US Congress in 1992 to provide support for the co-workers and family members of fallen firefighters across the country. They provide access to amazing services, programs and events such as an annual Memorial Day weekend, survivor conferences, literature and training for the grieving process, access to support groups and much more. The numerous groups include the Chief to Chief Network, which promotes communication between chiefs in different departments in their times of need, and the Local Assistance State Team which, when requested, provides support to families and departments within six hours of a line-of-duty death. To learn more about these incredible programs as well as rewarding volunteer opportunities, visit the NFFF website linked above. Since 2004, the NFFF has been hosting the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournaments (which now include almost 30 across the US) to raise awareness and funds for the foundation as well as to provide support to the families and co-workers of fallen firefighters. Hardison & Cochran is very honored to be a part of this tradition.
