WHAT IS FIREBALL ALL ABOUT?
Fireball is all about raising money for the local CFA brigades, so that their volunteers don't have to. The more money we can raise at Fireball; the less sausage sizzles our valued volunteers have to run. Learn more at our About Us section.
Here are some more frequently asked questions and answers:
Money raised by Fireball
Fireball is a community run event so who decides where the money goes? The captains of the Greater Warrandyte brigades, which includes, Warrandyte, North Warrandyte, South Warrandyte & Wonga Park, meet and decide where the greatest need is.
The captains decide which brigade and what appliance will benefit from the funds raised by each Fireball
Will all the money go to the local CFA brigades?
What are we fundraising for?
For our 2020 event, the captains have advised the Fireball Committee that their wish is for a new light tanker. This vehicle will be housed at Wonga Park.
