Fundraiser held for late Homewood firefighter

August 25, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Money raised goes to funding a scholarship and to charities which help families of firefighters killed in the line of duty.

Carey died while fighting a fire in March.

The fundraiser kicks off a series of events honoring Carey. Among them will be a motorcycle ride to Colorado Springs where Carey's name will be added to the fallen firefighters memorial on September 11.
