WOW, what can we say, the Moran Family Benefit was a Great Success! It was definitely a "once in a lifetime event" to help do something special for a special family and Team. Thanks to everyone who attended, all the sponsors and contributors and those who hosted the event. A special 'Thanks' to the Morans who flew in from New York to be with us. Approx. $44,000 was raised for John Moran's wife, Kim and their 2 sons, Ryan and Dylan. Another $12,000 was raised for Ladder Company 3. That's over $56,000!!!
