ALL FIRED UP! Set for Aug. 7July 20, 2021 | Headlines
PONCA CITY — The Ponca City Fire and Life Safety Council annual fundraiser ALL FIRED UP! is set for 6 p.m. Aug. 7, at Osage Casino.
The steak grilling competition features teams of firefighters against one another to determine who grills the best steak.
This year’s competition includes Ranch Drive Volunteer Fire Department firefighters competing against two teams of Ponca City firefighters.
The primary goal is to raise funds that support FLSC projects which include free car seat safety checks and fire prevention programs for kids and providing tools to better train local emergency responders.
Past events have resulted in $75,000 donated toward Pioneer Tech’s Emergency Services training tower plus another $7,500 for auto extrication training tools.
Ticket holders will sample ribeye steaks cooked from all teams, side dishes and dessert. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the Ponca City Chamber of Commerce, Rainmaker Sprinkler, or by contacting a member of the organization. Grilling begins at 6 p.m. and dinner is served at 7 p.m. For more information call 580 763-4963. A limited number of tickets are available.
The Fire and Life Safety Council is a 501-c3 organization whose mission is to promote fire prevention and life safety through education, training, and events to improve the quality of life for all citizens in Kay County.
