“It is our responsibility as a community organization to provide help and fire safety awareness for Southern Nevada families in need,” said Nino Galloway Anthony Galloway, President of the Firefighters of Southern Nevada Burn Foundation. “Fundraising events like the Firefighter Bachelor Auction bring the city of Las Vegas together as a community to help these families in their time of need. Burn injury, whether accidental or inflicted, remains one of the leading causes of childhood death and disfigurement in the United States. The support we receive from the public is so vital in making our fundraising events a success.”
