Adam’s Angels is a completely volunteer- driven program in memory of firefighter Adam David Rand (FDNY, Squad 288 & Bellmore Volunteer Fire Department), who became an angel on September 11, 2001 while saving others. They work tirelessly to help promote, advocate and support worthwhile causes in Adam’s name. Adam’s Angels is a program, not a 501c3. They select non-profit charities to support. When you attend an event hosted by Adam’s Angels, you make your check out to the 501c3 non-profit organization you wish to support (or pay online directly through that 501c3 non-profit organization’s bank account), not Adam’s Angels. For more information, visit: or email

Every dollar collected from admission and raffle ticket sales will go directly to the benefit the following two 501(c)3 charitable organizations:
The John Bellew Memorial Fund
Originally created to be a Scholarship Fund for the children of members of the FDNY, the John Bellew Memorial Fund has extended its purpose to also provide financial assistance to the families of members of the FDNY and NYPD who have suffered non-line of duty deaths.
To make a donation please make checks payable to: John Bellew Memorial Fund, 44 Abbey Court, Ramsey, NJ 07446.

The SSGT Chris Engeldrum FDNY Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #12033 was instituted on 8/12/2005, in memory of SSGT Christian P. Engeldrum, the first New York firefighter to die in Iraq out of those who have been activated since 9/11. In keeping in the spirit of their national organization, they have been steadfast supporters of the rehabilitation of disabled veterans from Walter Reed and Bethesda Hospitals, assisted the widows and orphans of disabled and needy veterans and promoted Americanism through education in patriotism and service to the community of New York City.
