Mine is a tough job, I know!
That firefighter in the photo is not just another pretty.. er.. face.
He is Mr. June of the 2007 Houston Firefighters Calendar. All proceeds from the sale go to the Burned and Crippled Children’s Fund. Click here to learn more and to buy a calendar: http://www.firefighterscalendar.org/default2.htm
Bruce Heckendorn of Houston Fire Station #8 was a fellow “Celebrity Waiter” at the Annual Cystic Fibrosis Fundraiser at Hotel Derek on Sept. 28th. Volunteers from various local TV stations, firefighters from the calendar and the Houston Texans cheerleaders waited on tables and turned all tips over to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Some interesting tid-bits you probably didn’t know:
You have to have more than just muscles to earn a page in the calendar. Heckendorn says firefighters who apply can’t have any disciplinary actions at all in their employment file.
Firefighters can’t appear in more than two Houston Firefighter Calendars ever!
This year, more than 250 firefighters vied for the 12 coveted spots.
OK.. that’s enough talk about firefighters. I AM married, you know!
I also met Dayna Steele at the event. Anyone who grew up in Houston probably recognizes the name. She was a DJ at KLOL Rock 101 for years in the spot after Stevens and Pruett.
These days Dayna spends her time writing and giving motivational speeches. Check out her website www.smartgirlsrock.com.
