Our Partners at the Muscular Dystrophy Association need our help to reach their goal of raising $750,000 from Illinois affiliates!

We all know how important the partnership between MDA and Firefighters is… The AFFI and MDA are teaming up to raffle off this hand-crafted 36″ layered metal AFFI sign! This unique item lights up and would be a perfect compliment for any Union Hall or Mancave!


We’ve set a goal of raising $25,000 through the raffle. Tickets are $25.00 each or 5 for $100. Entries will be accepted through November 30th and the Winner will be drawn on December 1st! Help us Fill the Boot!
