The Burn Foundation is having our Annual Picnic tomorrow, Sunday, August 23 at Almaden Lake Park from 11am – 3pm. The picnic will be held at the “Arroyo” picnic area, located on the east side of the park off the Winfield Boulevard entrance. See map below.

Our Annual Picnic is special for many reasons, but the original idea was to celebrate Survivors and their Caregivers “out of the hospital setting.” Burn Survivors spend weeks, months, sometimes years in and out of the hospital. This picnic is really the only chance when everyone comes together to celebrate life, courage, family and friends.

Come as a Survivor, Caregiver, Firefighter, Supporter, Family or Friend. Food, Drinks, and Games will be provided!

We are Local.
We are Volunteers.
We are a certified Non-Profit.
We are the San Jose Firefighters Burn Foundation.
