Join us at the 3rd Annual Cranston Firehouse Chili Cookoff at the Blue Moon Pub on Saturday, September 22, 2018.

Get Involved

Each year the Foundation hosts fun and engaging fundraising events which require a great deal of planning, volunteers,  and time.  Our signature event, the Lt. Jim Pagano Foundation Charity Golf Tournament & Champions Dinner, is held each August, and features an 18 hole round of golf, gourmet lunch & dinner, contests, raffles, silent auctions, music and more.  Additionally, we have held Bartender Nights, Chili Festivals and 5k Road Races.


We seek volunteers for all of our events, especially in the areas of social media, sponsorship development, ticket sales, prize collection, event planning and logistics, and on-site staffing. Children of high school age can receive credit for community service while helping to raise money for their peers—kids helping kids!


Your donations will go toward all of the community goodness we accomplish each year. You can make a difference by donating or purchasing items with Amazon Smile. The Foundation is a 501C3 Organization.
