Last Thursday, Firehouse hosted its Fifth Annual April Foos Tournament, and we’re thrilled to report that it was our most successful foos tournament yet. With over 28 2-on-2 teams, we rolled our way into more than $3,400 in funds that benefitted an amazing organization called Free to Breathe.
When we learned that a former Firehouse colleague and long-time friend, Diane Testa, was diagnosed with lung cancer, we knew immediately that we wanted to help. And it was for that reason, we decided to contribute all proceeds from this year’s tournament to the charity of her choice: Free to Breathe.
The organization is united in the belief that every person with lung cancer deserves a cure. And we’re absolutely aligned with that thinking.
So keeping that mission in mind, we let the games begin. Yes, there may have been some dirty looks and some elbows thrown, but hey – we play to win. But in the end, no one was really injured and everyone seemed to have a lot fun.
Special thanks for Tom, Tommy and George at Milo Butterfinger’s for hosting the event for the third year in a row. Also, thanks to everyone who donated, played, spectated and boozed. The night was a blast and you should be pretty bummed if you missed it. There’s always next year, I suppose.
Oh, and congrats to Charlie Uniform Tango for winning first place. Again.
