“The Summit Police Department is pleased to join Summit and Millburn firefighters to raise money for disadvantaged and traumatized children, youth and families,” explains Chief Robert Weck. “It is going to be a fun evening and I hope that the community will come out and cheer us on as we make our modeling debuts for a great cause.” 

Members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend. Tickets are $125 each and can be purchased online at 

“This will be our third year of proudly participating,” reports Summit Fire Chief Eric Evers. “This event is as much about community building as it is about raising money for children and families. We look to once again setting the runway on fire to benefit Family and Children’s Services.”
