Two upcoming events benefit Peoria Firefighters Charities (PFFC). First up, the 26th Annual Peoria Firefighters Charities Charity Golf Tournament on Nov. 12. Held at Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia, 12575 W. Golf Club Dr. from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., proceeds benefit the efforts of PFFC, whose mission is to help those in need within the community.

Meanwhile, PFFC’s annual “Fire it Up” event is being held on Dec. 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Peoria Sports Complex, 16101 N. 83rd Ave. Held every year in the heart of the P83 District, the PFFC welcomes anything with wheels to its free charity car show. Annual sponsors and vendors help make the family fun event possible. From hot rods, motorcycles, trucks, bikes, tanks, fire trucks––anything with wheels is showcased. The car show is also a toy drop off for PFFC’s annual toy drive. Donations of an unwrapped toy for kids 1 to 16 years olds are collected and will be sorted and then delivered for a Merry Christmas to those who need a helping hand from Santa’s Firefighter Helpers.
