Heroes Salute Fundraiser Feb-6
Please note: all orders placed after 2:00 PM on Friday, February 4th will be seated in the adjacent room to the main one. You will still enjoy all the same entertainment and access to all facets of the fundraiser. However, your seating will be guaranteed only in the Arkasian Room. That being said, we expect most attendees will be standing & mingling during the event. We thank you for your understanding and support. Please note this is a direct result to the overwhelming response thus far.
Please join us at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood on Sunday, February 6th for a very special and impactful fundraising event.
Sadly, four heroes have passed away in the line of duty right here in Baltimore lately. It is now our duty to ensure their families understand just how loving and powerful the community is when it is unified. This event is being created with the goal of raising at least $20,000 ($5,000 per family) to benefit the families of late Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley and late Baltimore City Fire Members Lt. Paul Butrim, Kelsey Sadler, & Kenneth Lacayo. Make no mistake about it – we WILL reach our goal…and exceed it.
We will be holding a Bull & Oyster Roast at Jimmy’s Famous Seafood. The menu will be personally crafted by Chef Tony, and will feature an extensive array of freshly shucked raw bar, Maryland-style pit meats, delicious seafood options, and much more. He will go above and beyond for this occasion.
The official DJ of The Baltimore Ravens, Chris Kopec, will be providing the entertainment! You likely are familiar with Chris, whose virtual dance parties raised over two million dollars for charity during COVID.
Your hosts for the evening will be WJZ’s 2-time Emmy Award Winner Rick Ritter and a man who needs little introduction, but cares for Baltimore more than anyone else, T.J. Smith.
Tickets are $80 per guest. You can also purchase a VIP ticket for $110, which will feature a commemorative t-shirt. VIP Tables of 10 are also available for $1000.
If you are unable to attend the event, but wish to make a tax-deductible donation, you can do so by donating to The Famous Fund, a 501C3. All donations received between January 26th and February 7th will go directly to the families of the fallen.
Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley died after being shot in an ambush while she sat in her patrol car. Holley, a 39-year-old mother of four who joined the police department two years ago to make a difference, was shot in the head while working an overtime shift early in the morning of Dec. 16 in Curtis Bay.
Lt. Paul Butrim served for 16 years, Kelsey Sadler served 15 years, and Kenneth Lacayo spent seven years with the Baltimore City Fire Department. These heroes were responding to a two-alarm blaze inside a vacant, three-story rowhome when it collapsed, trapping the first responders inside.
ALL active duty firefighters & police officers are welcomed to enjoy this fundraiser free of charge. We ask that you RSVP with us via email – John@JimmysFamousSeafood.Com – so that we may make proper arrangements.
This event is open to all ages, and will be family-friendly. As is customary with all Famous Fundraisers, expect appearances from luminaries and a plethora of surprises. We will be calling in every favor we have for this one.
