Fundraiser to help replace aging and outdated Fire equipment
To show how important the Wayne Fire Station is to the community, Wayne residents Sammy Willingham and Bernadette Brock came together with the support of the fire department and City Manager Lisa Nocerini to plan a fundraiser that would help raise money to replace or update equipment used by the Wayne Fire Station.
“Saving Lives Is Their Mission, Saving Their Equipment Is Ours” is the name of the 2-part bowling fundraiser to be held on Saturday, April 16. Held at Wayne Bowl, 36900 Michigan Ave, there will be glow bowling for kids and free face painting from 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. for $10 per person. That evening, from 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. there will be adult bowling for $15 per person. Also planned are gift baskets and a 50/50 raffle. The money raised will help buy a new Jaws of Life and other equipment that should be replaced due to age.
Come out and support our fire personnel. They have done, and continue to do, their very best with the equipment they have. They shouldn’t have to make do using aging equipment in a life or death situation.
Donations can also be made by mail to: Attn: Capt. Gilstorff, Wayne Westland Fire Department, 3355 Wayne Rd, Wayne, MI 48184. Make checks payable to Wayne Westland Public Awareness.
