The New York City Fire Museum, the official museum of the FDNY, is one of New York City’s premier cultural institutions that traces its roots back to 1870. Its mission to Preserve, Celebrate and Educate, is managed by a non-profit organization established in 1981 when the collection was opened at its current location on Spring Street in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. And like so many other cultural institutions, our Museum was hit particularly hard during the COVID-19 pandemic, not only because it was closed to the public for six months, but also because philanthropic dollars were re-channeled for much-needed health-related expenses.
To avoid the fate of a predicted one-third of our country’s cultural institutions slated to close for good, the New York City Fire Museum has scheduled a fundraising golf outing that will take place on June 24 at the beautiful Muttontown Club in East Norwich, Long Island. The day promises to be memorable with many activities in addition to an exciting round of golf on the Alfred Tull-designed course, there will be a number of sponsors offering amenities, a wonderful brunch and cocktail reception and a meet-and-greet with our invited celebrity guest, Long Island-native, philanthropist, and heavyweight boxer Jerry Cooney.
