Hundreds of Madison-area community members will join the Sable Flames, an organization of the Madison Fire Department’s African-American firefighters, as they host the 28th Annual Second Alarm Scholarship Benefit on Saturday, Feb. 18, 7 p.m.-midnight at The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor’s Club in downtown Madison.
This annual event, which returns after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, is an evening of dancing, fun, recognition, and most importantly, raising money for scholarships to help individuals fulfill their educational dreams and goals.
The Sable Flames’ mission is to provide support, knowledge and leadership to members of its organization as well as to all members of the fire service. The Sables emphasize the importance of hiring, recruitment, promotion and retention of African Americans and other persons of color.
All proceeds for the 28th Annual Second Alarm Scholarship Benefit will go directly to the Jones-Robinson Scholarship fund. There will be an awards ceremony honoring this year’s Richard L Garner Community Service Award winner and a special ceremony honoring the founding members of the Sable Flames.
