The 52 Club is hosting a fundraiser for Big Hill Helitack’s 50 Anniversary, featuring a two-day hike from Pollock Pines and ending at El Dorado Hills Town Center on Sunday, May 20th, to recognize the efforts of helicopter-delivered fire resources. Hikers will begin arriving at approximately 11:30 a.m. at Town Center, and will be greeted by local firefighters, several fire engines, a fire prevention trailer and rescue helicopters offering audiences a spectacular visual. This year’s fundraiser will include a “fill the boot” effort with firefighters collecting donations for the families of fallen firefighters. A photo exhibition showcasing the Big Hill Helitack fire crew’s 50-year history will also be on display.
