Family and friends of fallen FDNY Firefighter Michael Kiefer are holding their annual Dinner Dance-Doo Wop Fund-raiser in his honor at 4 p.m. this Sunday in Franklin Square.

The event, which features Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge will be held at Plattdeutsche Park Restaurant, 1132 Hempstead Turnpike.

Tickets are $100 and include dinner, beer, wine, soda, coffee and dessert.

Kiefer, who worked out of Ladder 132, was killed during the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Proceeds from the dance will benefit the New York Firefighters Burn Center and the FDNY Fire Family Transport Foundation.

In recent years, family and friends have raised over $200,000 for Burn Center, sponsored 12 educational grants for firefighters totaling $6,000 and purchased a van in Michael's name for the Transport Foundation.
