INDIANAPOLIS -- It may be fall but it's about to get HOT in Indianapolis. 

The 2018 Indy Firefighter Calendar is available and local firefighters will be putting on a special performance during the release party on Friday, October 13.

The event will be held at the Firefighters Local 416 Union Hall from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

The event will showcase "12 Shades of Fire" chosen to be featured in the 2018 Indy Firefighter Calendar. 

"The hottest firefighters in Indy will take the stage in a proactive effort to sell firefighter calendars which raise critical funds for local youth-serving organizations," according to a release sent out Thursday. 

Firefighters will be on hand after the performances to autograph calendars and take photos with all who attend. 

Funds from the calendar sale will support firefighter projects that stop violence, develop leadership skills, increase reading skills, teach civility and responsibility, provide college access training and new opportunities to Indianapolis youth. 

Firefighters will also use the funds to sponsor families in desperate need of help during the Christmas holiday with clothes, food, and toys.

 

Tickets to the event cost $10 for general admission and $25 for VIP seating. Calendars are $20 each. You can also purchase the calendar without attending the event
