A huge thank you to the folks at Maggie’s Waterfront Cafe here in Northeast Philly.

A FUNDRAISER for injured firefighter Pat Nally and the families of the two firefighters who were killed in the April 9 Kensington warehouse blaze will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday at Maggie’s Waterfront Cafe on Delaware Avenue, near Linden, in Torresdale.

Most of the proceeds will go to Nally, 26, who was seriously injured in the fire, said Bill Gault, president of Local 22, the firefighters union, which is sponsoring the Honoring Heroes fundraiser along with the police union.

Some of the proceeds will go to the Fallen Heroes Memorial Fund, set up for a new memorial for fallen firefighters and police officers in Franklin Square Park.

Tickets are $25, which includes admission, beer, food and entertainment. They can be bought at the event, or in advance at Ladder 16, 2601 Belgrade St.; Engine 7/Ladder 10, Kensington and Castor avenues; Local 22, 415 N. 5th St.; and at Maggie’s. (LINK)

If you’re in the Philly area, stop by. It’s for a great cause.

    For those of us that aren’t local, got an address we can send a donation?

    That’s by the boat slip and dock there (Pleasant Hill) …used to be another bar a long time ago…can’t remember the name…seems to have had one overlooking the river from up away from the rocks forever.

    Wish I could be there (again).

    Stay safe.
