You can still buy tickets to this Saturday’s firefighter calendar debut party


It's getting hot in here

This Sat. Sept. 9 is the 2018 Charleston Firefighter Calendar party benefiting Toby’s Fund and Charleston Animal Society — one of the biggest parties of the year, at least according to our Best of Charleston voters. And if you’ve been slacking on getting tickets, you’re in luck: there are still a few general admission seats left at $35 a pop. Buy them online.

Your general admission ticket gets you access to the firefighter runway where hotties will strut their stuff for cute dogs. Tell us what could be better? Oh an after party? Yep, there’s one of those too ($10), held at Kingdom, where you can get your calendars signed by the models. The best part of course, is that all proceeds from the evening benefit Toby’s Fund, Charleston Animal Society’s medical fund which treats abused and abandoned animals.

Have fun, Charleston.

UPDATE: This event has been postponed until Sat. Sept. 30. Tickets will be honored for the new date.
