The charity raises funds through different events, fundraisers and sponsored community service. “The focus is to always develop a positive outlook in our local communities and nationwide,” McGuire adds.

People are very generous and we are thankful for those who attend each year. We expect another sold out event this year,” states McGuire. Other events planned this season include the Global Foundation for First Responders Golf Outing scheduled for the fall. The Global Foundation for First Responders raises awareness for the needs of national law enforcement, firefighters’ children’s foundations and other children’s charities so their immediate, and long-term needs, are satisfied.
