Retired FDNY Lieutenant Wins Giants Season Tickets
Fire Co. 2 draws raffle Thursday night
A retired NYPD firefighter and current volunteer member of the Mahwah Fire Department won an FD raffle giving away 2012-13 NY Giants season tickets Thursday night. Though John Spiech III was not present for the evening raffle drawing, members of the Co. 2 fire department who drew his ticket said Spiech is a big Giants fan who will be happy with the tickets.
The fourth annual season ticket raffle was a financial success for Fire Co. 2. Officials say funds raised from the raffle will be used to fund the department’s annual Santa Detail ride through Mahwah, to furnish the interior of the firehouse, for a yearly installation dinner for new members, and a memorial mass and breakfast in honor of fallen firefighters.
Co. 2 firefighter and raffle committee chair Ed Sinclair said all of the company’s members “went all out. They really put everything they had into selling tickets, and I want to thank all of them, and everyone who bought tickets.” He called the raffle “a big help,” to the department.
The FD is already getting ready for the fifth year of the raffle, which will give away tickets to the 2013-14 season.
The NY Giants are gearing up for preseason play at summer training camps. The team is set to play its season opener against the Cowboys September 5.
