The 2011 MDA fundraising kickoff is starting off this coming Friday at Shaw’s SuperMarket in Auburn. The Auburn Local 797 and Lewiston Local 785 Firefighters unions are trying to break the 2010 achievement of $16500. We fell short of our 2010 goal but have accomplished many milestones in the 2010 year. As a State we were able to collect almost $97,500 which is an all-time high for the State of Maine. Hopefully this year we can raise more money to find the cure for Muscular Dystrophy. With the help of our firefighter brothers, fire administration, local government and donations from the citizens we feel that this goal is possible.
The Firefighters would like to thank everyone in advance for their donations.

April 23, 2011 from 0800-1600 at the Shaw's on Center Street.
