Mission 500 to host charity golf day for child burn victims

Miami, Fl

Mission 500 will host a golf tournament later this month at the Bella Vista Country Club in Marlboro, NJ and will culminate with cocktails and dinner. Proceeds raised at the event will benefit the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation Children’s Camp. The camp makes it possible for burn victims under the age of 18 to attend a programme where they can enjoy their time together while putting their physical scars aside.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to make fundraising particularly difficult, and while Mission 500 is now primarily focused on virtual events, golfing has provided one of the few physical group activities deemed to be safe when mandated social distancing and preventive measures are followed,” said Ken Gould, Chairman of the Board at Mission 500. “Although the Mission 500 Golf Challenge will be different in many respects to ensure this is a safe event, it remains in-step with our longstanding goal of improving the lives of children in need by helping to support the work of organisations like the FDNY’s Burn Center Foundation Children’s Camp.”

Like Mission 500, the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organisation. Founded in 1975 by NYPD Firefighters, the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation remains dedicated to the advancement of burn care and the proper treatment of burns, research, prevention and education.

A growing number of event sponsors includes over 20 companies, such as ADT, Altronix Corporation, Galaxy Control Systems, and Assa Abloy.
