Eighteen of Southern Nevada’s finest firefighters put themselves on the line – for a good cause – at the 10th Annual Fire & Rain Firefighter Bachelor Auction, held Saturday, June 6 at RAIN Nightclub inside the Palms Casino Resort.
“There were a lot of people who poured their hearts and souls into making this event possible and it is fulfilling to see so much community support,” said Warren Whitney, Public Information Officer and spokesperson for the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation. “From the outstanding support we received from our bachelors, community partners and public supporters who attended the event, the Burn Foundation was able to raise $55,000, which will benefit Southern Nevada families in need.”
