(Toledo News Now) - It's been a tough year for the Dickman family as they've mourned the loss of Toledo firefighter Jamie Dickman, who died in a fire in January of 2014. The community will have another opportunity to show the family support at a benefit this weekend.

Jamie's parents and sister started a charity in his honor, called the Live Your Dream Foundation. This weekend and Monday will be the foundation's first fundraisers.

On Saturday there will be an all-you-can-eat wings benefit at the Brass Pelican Varsity Club in Sandusky. For $20, guests can eat wings and drink. There will also be gift baskets raffled off.

Then, on International Firefighters Day, Bob Evans locations in northwest and northeast Ohio will donate 15 percent of their proceeds to the foundation. To participate, eat at a Bob Evans restaurant on Monday, May 4, and show them the event flier.

The family says this is a way for them to move forward and do something Jamie would want them to do. The money raised will go toward scholarship, putting stuffed animals on fire trucks for children, and helping other firefighters.

“Another thing is to go into the fire stations and see what they need,” said Jamie's mother Linda Dickman. “Sometimes it's as simple as glasses – they need glasses. Others might need a mattress because springs are popping up out of it. These are things that firefighters have to pay for on their own, no one supplies them.”

For more information on the fundraisers, visit the Live Your Dream Foundation on Facebook.
