BRIDGEPORT - Twelve of Bridgeport's bravest firefighters posed for a 2011 calendar to raise money for an important cause.

Dr. Jennifer Lynne, the owner of Backstorke in downtown Bridgeport, helped the men come up with the idea as a way to raise money for the families of two fallen firefighters. The calendars are $15 each and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the families.

Firefighters say that they will do anything to help their fallen brothers and hope the calendar will make sure that they are never forgotten.
