Firefighters gather for annual St. Patrick's Day ball
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
Firefighters from all over the country kicked off St. Patrick's Day Weekend at the 2013 St. Patrick's Day Firefighter's Ball on Friday.
A percentage of the money raised from the third annual ball will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Second Harvest Food Bank.
Mike Dodd, the president of Local 574 Professional Firefighters Association says the ball is a great way to connect with other firefighters.
"We felt that it is the perfect time of year, when everybody is in town, especially all the other firefighters from across the country are in town. We like to make sure they start the weekend off right," said Dodd.
WTOC's Don Logana served as the emcee for the ball.
