Know More About AFIRE

We are proud the AFIRE organization has been in the community of Pinellas County since its formation in 1984. During that time, the members have constantly achieved the mission statement by enhancing the lives of persons with intellectual disabilities. Hundreds of families have been touched through the efforts of AFIRE.

There are several ways to support AFIRE.

Past participation in the annual Dave Vosen Memorial Golf Tournament has been a tremendous help in supporting our fundraising efforts.  With many of our events, it is not necessary to be a participant to support the cause.  Soliciting donations for auction items, goodie bag items, or gift cards for prizes can help us make a difference in the lives of Adults with Developmental Disabilities.
