Golf outing honors fallen firefighters


Local firefighters and supporters gathered at Prairieview Golf Club in Byron Friday for the 6th Annual Northern Illinois Fallen Firefighters Memorial Golf Tournament.

The best-ball tournament is one of a series taking place nationwide to raise money for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The event featured lunch, a steak dinner, raffles, and door prizes.

Since its establishment in 2004, the tournament has raised nearly $2,000,000 for the NFFF, which provides programs and services for surviving families like scholarships, workshops, and conferences. For more information, visit
