Northern Illinois opens its football season on Saturday, but there’s anticipation for next week’s game…which will include a fundraiser for wounded veterans.

The Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois is sponsoring a pre-game tailgate party in honor of Patriot Day; firefighters from DeKalb will be providing the party, tickets to the game against Murray State and an honor guard for the pre-game ceremonies.

Patrick Eriksen from the DeKalb Fire Department says proceeds will go to the AFFI Warrior Program; he says AFFI looks for returning veterans in need of assistance, and gives them whatever help is required.

Two years ago, firefighters held a popular fundraiser featuring the sale of T-shirts; those monies went towards providing a vehicle for a wounded vet.  While those aren’t available this year, tickets to the game and pre- and post-game parties will go a long way towards helping one or more lucky veterans.

Anyone interested in getting tickets to this event should contact Eriksen at the DeKalb Fire Department, or at (630) 308-2551.
