A silent auction and raffle will be held during the event. All the proceeds go to the Association’s scholarship fund.
In 2007, the East Pierce Volunteer Firefighters’ Association established Scholarships of Excellence to be awarded annually to one graduating senior at each of the high schools within the East Pierce Fire District.
The scholarships can be used to attend any two-or four-year accredited college or university, or service-oriented technical college in the State of Washington.
The student must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and intend to enter the fields of firefighting, law enforcement, medicine or social work.
“This is the primary fundraiser for our scholarship program,” East Pierce Volunteer Firefighter Bill Dedge says. “We are very proud to be able to present these worthy students with much needed financial aid.”
