Last night the USA Fire Protection team gathered at Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI to celebrate the 30th Annual Burn Center Golf Invitational (BCGI). This charitable event benefits many organizations run by the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation. This fundraiser supports, Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s Regional Burn Center, AFS Summer Camp for Burn-injured Youth, Newspapers In Education, and other fire safety and burn prevention programs.
USA Fire Protection sponsors the event at a Platinum level and we are in good company – APi Group, Gregg Huennekens, and Reliable Automatic Sprinkler also sponsor at this level. We are proud to be supporters of such a special event. Steve Sferra, Marnie Klein, and Jenna Jordan also serve on the BCGI Planning Committee. They are responsible for over 200 attendees each year.
This year’s sponsors were gifted with some sentimental artwork that Wisconsin’s Burn Camp campers worked on during the camp week to show their appreciation for the support they receive from the BCGI.
We would also like to congratulate Doctor Tom Schneider – or ‘Doc’ to those who know him well. He received the prestigious Ray Malek award for his investment in fire and burn safety. Doc spent decades treating burn patients at Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital. He is also one of the founders and first volunteers of Wisconsin’s Summer Camp for Burn Injured Youth. He has made a generous contribution to the burn survivor community and is very deserving of this recognition.
Thank you to all those who help make this a success every year!
