Local Companies Create Fundraiser to Help Jacksonville Firefighter Whose Home Was Destroyed During Hurricane Irma

Join us September 23rd for a fundraiser for the Tomlinson family

Unfortunately the heroes of our local communities are often the ones last thought of when disaster strikes.

Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Firefighter Jacob Tomlinson and his family lost their home, pets, and possessions to a blazing house fire while he was hard at work helping his North Florida community with Hurricane Irma rescue and recovery operations.

1-800-BOARDUP, 3PHASE Business Advisors, and Atlantic Beach Brewing Company have joined together to create an important fundraiser to help the Tomlinson family in their recovery efforts. Please join local firefighters, police, and neighbors on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, from 5:30 PM until 12:30 am at the Atlantic Beach Brewing Company. In addition to all the donations, 1-800-BOARDUP and Atlantic Beach Brewing Company will donate $1 for every beer purchased during this event.

Beth Toenies, President of 1-800-BOARDUP Corporate Headquarters, said that “1-800-BOARDUP always looks for ways to help our community, and this is a family very deserving of assistance. Unfortunately the heroes of our local communities are often the ones last thought of when disaster strikes. Help us change this stigma by supporting the Tomlinson family. Our 1-800-BOARDUP of Jacksonville Local Service Partner is working with our corporate staff to put on a great event.”

In addition to donations, 1-800-BOARDUP is also seeking items for a silent auction. Michael Hosto, Founder of 1-800-BOARDUP, said, “Any items you have to donate will help. We are hoping to have local artists and companies donate valuable items to bring in more donations for this family.” If you have items to donate, please contact MichaelHosto(at)1-800BOARDUP.com.
