After hearing from two representatives with Hoods For Heroes at its board meeting this week, members of the Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) in Northeast Florida voted to donate $1 for each ticket sold at the upcoming Jacksonville RV MegaShow to the nonprofit group.

The donation would be capped at $10,000 for Hoods For Heroes — an Orange Park-based organization that is raising money to provide more protective hood gear for firefighters.

The FRVTA’s financial commitment represents the first time the group has diverted a portion of its show admission to a nonprofit cause. Last year, the RV MegaShow broke the 10,000 guest attendance record.

Hoods For Heroes co-founders Jeff Rountree and Bill Hamilton founded the cause a few years ago and established a nonprofit agency in July of this year to raise funds to purchase the hoods for firefighters.
