What could be better than some hot firefighters and some cute animals?

Anthony Saraceni, a firefighter with North Charleston sums it up about right. "It's a beautiful recipe, just perfect."

The firefighters of the Lowcountry baring nearly everything while showing their dance moves in an attempt to impress the ladies and the judges, and win a spot on the charity calendar. According to the participants, they couldn't have had more fun doing it.

Andrew Szoke with Joint Base Charleston Fire Department says, "It's awesome, we haven't had this much fun in forever."

So while an event like this may be out of the norm for the firefighters, not a one of them is complaining about getting the opportunity to have hundreds of women screaming their name cheering them on. The fact that it is for a good cause, just makes it all the sweeter.

"I have three rescue dogs so as soon as I heard about this, I jumped right on it," says Saraceni.

Szoke agrees, "It is fantastic, and I mean that 100% , the animal hospital at the Charleston Animal Society is something to be proud of."

So as the crowds went wild, and the money got counted, these guys can sleep knowing they earned every dollar. And they will continue to rake in the funds with their calendar soon to come. Michael Pfau of North Charleston says, "There is no way they are not going to buy this calendar now."

Plenty of happy women agree. This calendar will be a success.
