The 100 Club of Rhode Island has pledged $50,000 to the RIAFC Foundation’s project to build the RI Firefighters Memorial at the RI Fire Academy.
A commitment letter presentation was made by 100 Club President Jim Grundy and 100 Club Vice President Joe Terino at the club’s annual golf tournament & fund raiser held at the Alpine Country Club. Accepting the letter on behalf of the RIAFC and the RIAFC Foundation were Chief Frank Brown – RIAFC President, Chief Oscar Elmasian – RIAFC Vice President, Chief Rick Petrin – RIAFC Immediate Past President and Chief Rick Susi, Ret – RIAFC Executive Director.
The RI Firefighter Memorial project is in the design phase and about ready to go out to bid. The project should be completed by the Summer of 2019. The RIAFC and the RIAFC Foundation are in the process of raising funds through the sale of raffle tickets, the sale of engraved bricks that will featured in the memorial, as well as other limited special types of sponsorships. More information on the project can be found at their website, https://rifirechiefs.com.
A 100 Club flag will fly at the memorial and a plaque will commemorate their generous contribution to the project.
