California Fire Foundation

We are honored to be part of the California Fire Foundation 5th Annual Gala. For five years THRASHBIRD has donated art to this wonderful charity. Hosted by Superstore’s Lauren Ash, the event will benefit the California Fire Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which aids fallen firefighter families, firefighters and the communities they protect.

Formed in 1987 by California Professional Firefighters, the California Fire Foundation’s mandate includes an array of survivor and victim assistance projects and community initiatives:

  • California Firefighters Memorial;

  • Firefighters and Their Families;

  • Victim Assistance;

  • Community Improvement.
