Progressive Firefighters of Atlanta will present a BWA Professional Wrestling fundraiser for the families of fallen firefighters today at 6 p.m. The event will raise money for the families of Sgt. Frank Guinn, Firefighter Jermaine Hall and Capt. Cynthia L. Wright, who each worked in fire stations that served Buckhead residents. None of the firefighters died in the line of duty: two died for medical reasons and one died after a car hit him during a decathlon.

The event will take place at the Rosel Fann Recreation Center, 365 Cleveland Ave., Atlanta. The Teddy Long autograph party starts at 6 p.m. and the wrestling matches start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and free for children 12 and under with paid adult admission and a can of food donation.

Information: (404) 908-2975.
