" A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to preserve and ensure in spite of overwhelming obstacles"
- Christopher Reeve
The start of The Marquette County Police & Firefighters' Fund began in 2018 with the inaugural Police & Firefighters' Ball. With the success of the very first event, it was clear that the communities of Marquette County shared in the founders' vision of supporting and honoring the men & women who protect us each and every day. Since then, the annual Ball has become a premier event, and we are incredibly humbled by the increasing support. Since 2018, we have raised over $80,000 with the help of our generous sponsors, donors, and participants. The annual Ball would not be possible without these funds, but even more importantly, the funds raised allow us to support the financial needs of our local police & fire departments, as well as various other local charities and organizations. Our mission has always been to support the communities of Marquette County in such a way that honors our local police & firefighters. As we continue on this journey, we extend our sincerest gratitude to those who have helped us along the way. The support we consistently receive is a reflection of how truly amazing our community is.
