Firefighters’ fundraiser at Krause Berry farm

Krause Berry Farms is hosting a special day to benefit the Township of Langley Firefighters’ Charitable Society

If you come down to the farm this day, you’re in for a great fun time! On September 12, Krause Berry Farms is hosting a special day to benefit the Township of Langley Firefighters’ Charitable Society ( TLFCS ), and everyone will be treated to a number of special activities and events.

There will be bouncy castles and a Re/Max Special Events Team hot air balloon; firefighters serving Krause’s famous berry waffles and competing in a pie eating contest; JRfm’s Street Team will be on hand providing the music, plus a lot more! All the fun will be available by donation.

“We did this with Krause Berry Farms last year and everyone had a great time,” said TLFCS director Jhim Burwell. “It was just a spectacular event, in a fantastic venue that is a destination for so many within the community already! It was the Krause team’s idea to bring a firefighters-themed family day to their farm and market, and it went over like a hot-air balloon!

“This year is going to be even bigger and more fun, especially since the rivalry for the firefighters’ pie-eating contest has been building for a year!”

Currently the TLFCS has several projects being developed to the benefit of local, provincial and national charities and partners; including a nutritious Snacks Program for local students with the Langley School District Foundation and Save On Food Group, through hosting events like the 2013 Pacific Regional FireFit Championships, by installing clothing donation bins at Township of Langley fire halls, as well as organizing fundraising activities for the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation, the B.C. Professional Firefighters Association Burn Fund, the Canadian Cancer Society and Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

“This is our main keystone event to raise funds for our charitable partners,” said Burwell.

The Township of Langley Firefighters’ Charitable Society is a not-for-profit society registered in the Province of British Columbia, in the interest of focusing the fundraising and benevolent activities of the Township of Langley’s firefighters.
