Adam's Angels 5th Annual Salute to benefit John Bellew Fund & Chris Engeldrum FDNY VFW

Date: Thursday, September 23, 2010
Time: 7:00pm - 11:00pm
Location: The Saloon NYC
Street: 1584 York Avenue (between 83rd & 84th)

If you or your firehouse are interested in being part of our host committee, please send an email to [email protected].

Honor our fallen heroes & recognize the sacrifices made everyday at the 5th Annual Salute. Each year, Salute promises to be bigger and better than the previous and 2010 will certainly be no exception. This celebration of life is 100% volunteer driven which means that every penny goes directly to the 501(c)3 charities.

This year's event will raise crucial funding for the John Bellew Memorial Fund (specifically supporting families of those whose deaths are considered non line of duty by the FDNY and NYPD) and the SSGT Chris Engeldrum FDNY Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #12033 (helping American military members who have been wounded in the War on Terror).

The 2010 Adam's Angels Heroes & Halos Awards will be presented to the FDNY Boxing, Football and Hockey teams for their steadfast commitment of giving back to the community. Each of these teams have not only been great supporters and friends of Adam's Angels over the years, but they also raise crucial funding for an array of non profit organizations.

For the fifth year, "Brotherhood" tickets will be made available to both active and retired FDNY, NYPD and United States military members for the special price of just $5.00 each. "Friends" tickets are only $15.00 when purchased in advance. All tickets include a free beverage courtesy of Saloon and entertainment. Tickets will be available soon- online via Paypal for credit card purchase and through the US Postal Service for check or money order purchase.

Entertainment will be announced soon!!!

If you or your firehouse are interested in being part of our host committee, please send an email to [email protected].

SSGT Chris Engeldrum FDNY Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #12033 was started by veterans of the FDNY with SSGT Engeldrum as their memorial namesake. Please visit: for more information.

The John Bellew Memorial Fund was originally created in memory of Lt. Bellew to be a scholarship fund for the children of members of the FDNY, the fund has extended its purpose to also provide financial assistance to the families of members of the FDNY and NYPD who have suffered non-line of duty deaths. Please visit: for more information.

Adam’s Angels is a completely volunteer- driven program in memory of firefighter Adam David Rand (FDNY, Squad 288 & Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department), who became an angel on September 11, 2001 while saving others. We work tirelessly to help promote, advocate and support worthwhile causes in Adam’s name. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have never and will never directly accept donations. Adam’s Angels is a program, not a 501c3, and feel we are better served helping select non-profit charities achieve their goals. This is why when you attend an event hosted by Adam’s Angels, you make your check out to the 501c3 non-profit organization you wish to support (or pay online directly through that 501c3 non-profit organization’s bank account), not Adam’s Angels.
