Lakewood’s Bravest come together to help fellow firefighter battling cancer

Lakewood’s Bravest will be conducting several fundraising activities to help one of our own brothers who has been diagnosed with cancer. Firefighter Dean Jalovec is a 26 year veteran of the Lakewood fire department. Dean is married with 2 children both currently in school and this news has been devastating to his family and all of our fire department members.

Dean will be going through intensive cancer treatments and will be unable to work through these challenging times. Our efforts will be concentrated on relieving some of the financial burden that he will incur during his treatment.

The fire service has been historically good about helping fellow brothers during difficult and challenging times.

Our first of many efforts will be a Night at the Races to be held on August 1, 2015.

Date: Saturday August 1, 2015

Location: St. Mary’s | 3256 Warren Rd. Cleveland, Ohio (Near Warren Village)

Time: Doors open @ 5:30pm, Races begin @ 6:30PM

Donation: $25 (Includes Food, Beer, Pop and Snacks) BYOB, Adults Only

*We will be featuring our very own firehouse comfort food, including our award winning chili.

Tickets will be available to purchase starting the week of June 8th.
