PATERSON, NJ - Paterson FMBA Locals 2 and 202 are hosting a pasta dinner and tricky tray fundraiser to support two of their own, according to Kyle Hughes, president of FMBA Local 2.

The event, which will be held from 6:30 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Monday, March 2, at The Brownstone House, will raise funds for James “Jimmy” Bradley and Jesus “Chino” Perez. Both men are battling cancer.

“For firefighters your coworkers are your family,” Hughes told TAPinto Paterson. “When one of us is down the rest of us put our collective strength towards lifting them back up.”
