Here’s more info on Andy and this cause:

Andy MacDonald

Andy was a friend, son, brother and volunteer firefighter, who tragically lost his life in the flooding of the Cowlitz River nine years ago. On November 6, 2006, Andy, 19, was on a hunting trip with his family when the river bank that his truck was parked on gave way.

Out of tragedy something good can be born; Andy’s family and close friends set up a scholarship in his name. Each November, in honor of Andy’s birthday and untimely passing a fundraiser is held.

All of the money is donated straight to the Andy MacDonald Fire Services Scholarship at the Puget Sound Skills Center, where Andy received his firefighting training. This scholarship will assist future cadets in the Puget Sound Skills Center Fire Services class to help with their continued education/training in Firefighting.

Andy’s passion in life was to help those in need and this is our way of assisting others with the same life goal.

For more information on Andy MacDonald, here’s a link to a Facebook tribute page, chock full of great photos that will soon make those who didn’t know him feel like they actually did.

Fundraiser Screening & Presentation of ‘The Maury Island Incident’ Oct. 25 at 7 p.m.

TMII8-5x11PosterTuk

A full screening and special presentation of the locally-made, award-winning historic UFO film “The Maury Island Incident” will serve as a benefit for the Tukwila Historical Society on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2015, starting at 7 p.m.

The 30-minute film will screen at the Foster Performing Arts Center (4242 S 144th Tukwila, 98168), and will be followed by a special Historical Presentation by Screenwriter Steve Edmiston called “No Confession: J. Edgar Hoover and The Maury Island Incident.”

Suggested donation is $10 (Students with ID $5), and tickets are available online here: http://bit.ly/1hoL9eW. Tickets will also be available at the door, or online from http://www.mauryislandincident.com.

Filmmakers will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the film and story afterwards.

The Maury Island Incident” is a 30-minute film that tells the forgotten, historic yet tragic story – taken directly from declassified FBI documents – of Harold Dahl’s June 21, 1947 UFO sighting near Maury Island and the first reported ‘Man In Black’ encounter that happened to him the next day.

The film won a highly competitive Washington FilmWorks Innovation Lab Award, and recently took home “Best UFO Short Film” honors at the International UFO Congress in Arizona.

Directed/Produced by three-time Emmy Award winner Scott Schaefer (Bill Nye the Science Guy, Penn & Teller:Bullsh*t, The Arsenio Hall Show, Almost Live! and many others) from a script by Writer/Producer Steve Edmiston (Crimes of the Past, A Relative Thing, The Day My Parents Became Cool, and others), the film explores the origins of the iconic Men In Black with a conspiratorial mythology set during the “summer of the saucers” in 1947, leading directly to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

“We love screening the film for local historical societies,” Edmiston said, “because despite this being a sci-fi UFO story, it’s also steeped in fascinating local history that leads all the way to the then-head of the FBI!”

The film – which was shot in Burien, Des Moines, Tukwila and off the shores of Maury Island – has also been turned into an “Original Series” and can be found on Hulu and Indieflix.

Here’s a trailer for the film:
