Great Balls of Fire Inc., which is a 501-C(3) non-profit organization, was founded by Officer Danny Graham in late 2006. The mission of Great Balls of Fire is to assist sworn public safety personnel with financial need due to injury or illness. Inspiration for the creation of the organization came after a friend, Officer John Pou, was paralyzed from the chest down in a tragic accident in June 2005. As medical expenses mounted, the financial drain on the Pou family became burdensome and officers sought a way to assist the family financially. The Great Balls of Fire Charitable Foundation was born.In 2017 Great Balls of Fire Inc. became the primary Foundation for the Annual Charlotte Heroes Hockey Game. The Foundation now supports sworn public safety members and their families in both North and South Carolina. In addition to helping public safety members and families the Foundation supports other accredited 501-C(3) Foundations that assist public safety and military families in need.
