Fired Up For Kids Dissolves Following Lawsuit

DENVER (AP) — A nonprofit organization that produced firefighter calendars to raise money for a children’s burn center has agreed to dissolve.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said Thursday his office filed a consent decree that transfers the assets of the Denver-based organization Fired Up For Kids to its successor organization, Colorado Firefighter Calendar Inc.

Suthers’ office had filed a lawsuit against Fired Up For Kids in December, seeking to dissolve it. The lawsuit alleged that the organization operated as a for-profit business despite presenting itself as a nonprofit entity and that the group’s founder used the organization’s bank accounts for personal expenses.
