What is hot, sexy and green all over? The South Florida Firefighters Calendar announced today that it is going green. AC Graphics, the first triple certified green printer in the state of Florida, has partnered with the calendar to print the 2009 edition on paper derived from sustainable forests that doesn't harm the environment.
"We are excited that AC Graphics is allowing us to make this possible. The South Florida Firefighters Calendar is about giving back to the community," said calendar creator and President Lt. Luis Espinosa. "This year we are proud to take it a step further by doing something that is also good for the earth. As we get closer to our 20h year anniversary it's great to see that the calendar just continues to get bigger and better."
The new earth friendly calendar will be revealed at this years annual grand opening weekend August 14-18th. During those four days, the hot heroes will finally be unveiled, igniting flames to raise awareness and funds for local charities.
The South Florida Firefighters Calendar - one of the hottest and longest running in the nation - will be sold and autographed by the firefighter models at all official events for $17 which goes to Here's Help, an acclaimed drug treatment and rehabilitation program created by "Footy," South Florida's famous WIOD News Radio 610 radio personality and host of the Footy Show and other amazing local charities.
