Team VFD will be climbing to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

The Greek Restaurant will host a fundraiser for Team VFD

For the fourth year, Team VFD and the Ventura Fire Foundation will be participating in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb. 14 members of Team VFD will be climbing the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, Washington to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. All 14 members will have the grueling task of climbing 69 floors, 1356 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation in full firefighting safety equipment to bring awareness and raise money for this great cause.

This year, Team VFD has partnered with The Greek Restaurant in Ventura Harbor to host a fundraiser. The fundraiser will be Feb. 20,  from 12:00 to 3:00pm. Your $20 donation will include buffet style lunch, Greek dancers, silent auction, raffle prizes and a performance by the Ventura City Firefighters Pipes and Drums.

This year Team VFD will be climbing in honor of Shaloma McCay. Shaloma is a beautiful 10 year old girl who just finished her 8th round of chemo, which means if all of her tests come with good results, she only has one round left. She cannot wait to get her IV’s out so she can go swimming again. All proceeds from this event will go to support Shaloma and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Please come show your support for Team VFD and Shaloma. This great event will sell out quickly. Tickets will be sold at the door or Pre-sale tickets may be purchased at
