ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Ann O'Malley's is gearing up for a fundraiser to benefit the 19 firefighters who died in an Arizona wildfire last month.
The Irish pub on Orange Street is decked out in firefighting gear and insignias of fire departments from around the world.
It's a popular hangout among the local firefighting community.
Owner John Cunningham says he felt compelled to give back.
"It made me sick to my stomach. The tragedy is just unparalleled. There are 19 families that are affected by this and it's terrible," said Cunningham.
Cunningham along with the International Association of Fire Fighters Union Locals 3865 and 2282, the St. Johns County Fire Rescue and Pink Heals will hold a fundraiser and silent auction to benefit the Prescott Firefighters Charity.
Local firefighters will wait tables.
"All the tips that are generated by our guest waiters, 100 percent of that, is going to the charity," said Cunningham.
Also, 100 percent of the Guinness sales will go to the charity and 10 percent of the day's earnings will be donated.
Cunningham says it's the least he can do to help a group that made the ultimate sacrifice.
"You see one of these big red trucks going by Jacksonville firefighter, St. Johns County, St. Augustine. You never know if they're going to come back from that call," said Cunningham.
The fundraiser will begin on Sunday, July 21st at Ann O'Malley's, from noon to 5 p.m. Fudge Buckets will also be donating 10 percent of its day's earnings to the Prescott Firefighters Charity.
