On Thursday, June 27, 2019, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) hosted its 20th Annual March of Dimes Barbecue at Department headquarters to raise funds for this worthwhile cause.
“Our goal is always to raise the bar every year,” said LACoFD Chief Daryl Osby. “Last year, we raised nearly $30,000 and that’s impressive since we only have 5,000 employees. This year, we hope to make even more for the March of Dimes.”
Members of the Executive Team helped serve lunch to staff. There were also special appearances by Los Angeles Rams cheerleaders and the LA Galaxy promotional team’s, Star Squad.
This yearly event raises money for the March of Dimes whose organizational mission is to prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality through research, education, legislative advocacy and community service.
The Irving Moskowitz Foundation, King Taco, Inc., AMVAC Chemical, F&A Federal Credit Union, California Water Service and Hawaiian Gardens Casino graciously sponsored the event.
The Department appreciates all the sponsors, donors and personnel that made the event a success!
