Event Description:
The Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce is proud to host the 6th Annual Durham First Responders Appreciation Breakfast at the Durham Convention Center. This community event is aimed at acknowledging the commitment of the men and women serving Durham and the surrounding areas. The 2019 event will celebrate and recognize first responders serving the City of Durham, Durham County, Duke University, North Carolina Central University, Durham Technical Community College, along with North Carolina State Highway Patrol - 15 divisions in total. Join us for this opportunity to say, "thank you."

We are honored to have Dan Pfeifer, a new Durham resident, as our keynote speaker for this event. Dan comes from a long line of first responders and was in NYC on 9/11. His brother Ray was a dedicated first responder who spent months at Ground Zero, and who now has a foundation in his name.

The Ray Pfeifer Foundation is a 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to assisting September 11th first responders, firefighters and police, with medical needs not covered by insurance. The foundation was established in memory of Ray Pfeifer, a NYC firefighter who died on May 28, 2017 from 9/11 cancer. Ray never stopped putting the needs of others before his own. He was a leading force in lobbying to extend the Zadroga Act through 2090, ensuring health care coverage for 75,000 people who need, or will need, treatment for health conditions developed as a direct result of 9/11 exposure.

For every seat sold, the attendance of a first responder will be sponsored. To show your support, click the "register now" link to become an event sponsor. Additionally, if your company offers a first responders discount or are interested in offering one in collaboration with the event, we want to hear from you!
