“Community Pint Night” raised $170! Bemidji Brewing generously agreed to sponsor the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. $1 from every beer and WOI merchandise sales raised the funds. A big thanks to Katie and Ben Lang... and of course Bemidji Brewing! bemidjibeer.com
Come watch the finest "red-carded" hockey players face off in a winner-take-all tournament! The event is a chance for the Minnesota wildland fire "community" to play the great game of hockey and raise money for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF). The WFF supports firefighters and their families when line of duty injuries and fatalities occur. This private non-profit organization exists to support agency, municipal, volunteer, and private firefighters in ways insurance and other sources cannot. For more information, visit www.wffoundation.org.
Admission is FREE to the public! The tournament features music, announcing, referees, and all the excitement of a great hockey tournament. Everyone is invited to ice skate with Smokey Bear! Plenty of chances to donate - Raffle Tickets, Chuck-a-Puck, Silent Auction, Merchandise, and more!
