There will be a 50/50 raffle to support the Somers Fire & Rescue Association “Make the Difference” community outreach initiative that promotes teaching CPR and other life saving measures to community members.
“We see an amazing opportunity to create more of a partnership with our community,” said Somers Firemedic Nico Celebre. “The “Make the Difference” initiative will raise our overall community health and wellness immensely.”
