Jim Beam and Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Release Firehouse Cookbook
The History and Mission of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund
The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was started in 2002 by the family of Terry Farrell who was both a member of FDNY Rescue 4 and the Fire Chief of the Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department and perished at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Through public and corporate donations, the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund has been able to provide families of fallen firefighters across America with educational scholarships and money for medical needs. The organization also uses the money they raise to provide underfunded fire departments with the fire apparatus and equipment that they need. Every dollar raised goes directly to a needy fire department or fire service family.
Jim Beam and the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund
In 2005, Jim Beam, the nation's premier bourbon distiller, partnered with the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund to raise money and awareness for the organization through the release of Limited Edition Terry Farrell bottles of Jim Beam Bourbon, and through 2008 they had donated approximately $250,000 to the Terry Fund. In 2009, they have donated another $100,000 through the sale of the specially labeled bottles which were available throughout the summer.
Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund Firehouse Cookbook
The latest fundraising effort between Jim Beam and the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund is a firefighter cookbook titled, "The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund California Firehouse Cookbook and What Inspires Our Local Heroes". For several months, the organization collected recipes from firefighters in California and across the nation, and the book was released on September. The book was released with much acclaim on September 2, 2009 at the All American Grill in Mission Valley, California.
Who Benefits From the Cookbook
According to Sheri Haupt of Beam Global Spirits and Wine, "100% of the proceeds from this book go directly to California firefighters and their families." One family that the book will will help is that of Rialto firefighter Keith Coffey, who was recently involved in an off-duty motorcycle accident. Ironically, Coffey had contributed a recipe, "Keith's Mexican Cornbread and Doubt Cake" to the cookbook. On September 4th, Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund of California's Board of Directors Mike O'Connor and Jim Colston, were honored to meet with Coffey and his family to present them with a donation to help with his medical expenses.
