Firefighters Halfway Through Mustache Campaign

Dozens of firefighters are at the midway point of their "Stache for Cash" campaign, which raises money to send young burn survivors to Champ Camp.
Dozens of firefighters in Clovis, Fresno and other parts of the state are halfway through their "Stache for Cash" campaign. The annual event kicked off three weeks ago with a "Shave-Off" party in Clovis. Each participant is collecting pledges as they let their facial hair grow (while conforming to slightly-relaxed department rules regarding appearance). The goal is at least $100 in donations per firefighter.

All the money raised will go to the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. Each summer, it sends dozens of young children to "Champ Camp", a place that allows them to be themselves and make friendships with others who know exactly what they've been through. It costs $750 to send one child to camp. All expenses are covered for them and their families. This year, the firefighters hope to gather $100,000 in donations.

At the end of the six-week campaign, there will be big Finale party. It takes place Saturday, November 16th, at the Clovis Rodeo Grounds. Please click on the related links for information on "Stache For Cash" and the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
