Houston Firefighters delight at Red Hot Gala
The “Red Hot” fashions were fierce, the uniformed firefighters distinguished, and the minimally clad calendar firefighters set the runway ablaze at The Royal Sonesta Houston for the 2019 Red Hot Gala to benefit the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association Charitable Foundation.
The Firefighters Pipes & Drums took to the runway and opened with their performance of Highland Cathedral and Dawning of the Day. MC Erica Contreras with the New 93Q brought the Local 341 President Patrick “Marty” Lancton to the stage to introduce the Charitable Foundation and its mission before presenting event chairs and co-chairs Elizabeth & Alan Stein and Robin & Alex Brennan-Martin with the Firefighters’ Axe, a symbol of achievement and service.
This year’s proceeds will reach over $500,000 and will be used by the Charitable Foundation to purchase additional equipment and provide services for Houston firefighters.
