Last night in New York City, Guinness raised a glass in honor of the Leary Firefighters Foundation and presented the LFF with a check for $535,000 in support of firefighters nationwide. LFF Founder Denis Leary was on hand to accept the donation.
“The Guinness brand really identifies with the firefighter community; this partnership is a big thing for us and we can’t thank these people enough,” explained Denis Leary when accepting the donation check from Guinness.
The event also kicked off the brand’s goal to raise $1 million in support of firefighters nationwide by St. Patrick’s Day 2015 with events, like this, honoring men and women who are MADE OF MORE.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Guinness for a third year,” said Denis Leary. “Since beginning our partnership two years ago, we’ve raised more than $650,000 to help firefighters nationwide. It’s an honor for the LFF to be recognized for its tireless efforts in support of all the men and women who put their lives on the line every day; the funds raised by Guinness will help our firefighter brothers and sisters in uniform across the country.”
