Union Hosting Fundraiser for Brosig Family
Our local firefighters union (Local 3535) is holding a special fundraiser for Firefighter Steve Brosig on Tuesday, September 9th, hosted at the Bittersweet Bistro. Steve is currently battling cancer, a process that is both physically and financially taxing. To participate, come dine at the Bittersweet Bistro that evening, and let your server know that you’re there for the Brosig fundraiser. The Bistro will donate 25% of your ticket to his fund. If you cannot attend but still wish to help, donations can be made directly to the family at http://www.gofundme.com/ahruds.
