Dear Friend of the Fire Service,
I hope all is well with you, your family, friends, and business.
After thoughtful conversations and consideration, the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation Fiesta de los Bomberos committee has made the difficult decision to go forward only with the Feast & Fairways golf tournament this year. The auction and gala are on hold until 2021 due to the uncertainty we all face from the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The golf tournament will be held at Starr Pass Golf Club on September 26. It is a terrific opportunity for firefighters to take a break and engage in some friendly competition.
This scaled down version is the 14th year of the event that, thanks to your contributions, has raised more than $500 thousand for programs and services that support our firefighters through the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation (GTFF) and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF).
We are not done!
We are already planning the 2021 gala, auction and golf tournament to make sure that local firefighters who have been diagnosed with cardiac, cancer, and mental health conditions continue to get the treatment they need to heal and return to duty. Now, more than ever, we are thankful for their service to our community.
You may make a donation, become a sponsor and register for golf all in one place. The number of golfers is limited, so please sign up soon.
Please stay safe. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the links in September.
