Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey, the whiskey brand owned by former UFC Champion Conor McGregor, has generously given a donation of $100,000 to the Savannah Fire Department located in Georgia.
In Savannah, Georgia, the City Council passed a resolution to formally accept the $100,000 donation given by Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey for the betterment of the city's fire department.
The resolution passed by the Savannah City Council stated that there is a crucial requirement for donations to ensure the safety of firefighters.

“We’re in Savannah, Georgia, for St. Patrick’s Day. We’re here now visiting the firefighters at a fire station. We supported this exact fire station. We supported [it] with Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey and can now say hello to the team here, and now we’re getting ready for the Saint Patrick’s Day parade, and we’re excited,” he said.
“Conor, he’s donated a total of 3.7 million through Proper Twelve to assist Tunnel for Towers, which helps policemen, firemen, and military – either deceased or injured – build some homes, pay mortgages off … so that’s a true gentleman,” a firefighter said.
“How impressive that is to see him coming to Savannah to be able to enjoy the festivities with us,” another fireman remarked.
The Savannah Fire Department shared photos of McGregor spending time with the firemen.
The resolution passed by the Savannah City Council stated that McGregor had “pledged that Proper No. Twelve would donate $5 for every case of Proper No. Twelve sold until donations reached $1 million annually to first responder organizations worldwide.”
