Dear Friends of the Fire Service,
As we enter into our 12th year of proudly serving and supporting our firefighter needs, we are excited to continue our partnership with the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation (GTFF). It will allow for more of the proceeds from our benefit dinner and golf tournament to address local firefighter health and safety issues. GTFF will receive a majority of the proceeds from the event to focus on very serious issues that affect firefighters; cardiac, cancer, and mental health and wellness. GTFF programs help local firefighters who have been diagnosed with these conditions get the treatment they need to heal and return to duty.
We are pleased to maintain our support of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and its efforts to honor the Nation’s Fallen Firefighters and assist surviving family members. The event committee has decided that proceeds from the live/silent auction will go to NFFF programs.
Fiesta de los Bomberos 2018 is a firefighter’s party! Our name reflects the richness and culture of our region and the good time we have raising money for a great cause: supporting the men and women of the fire service.
On behalf of the event committee, thank you for your support. I am grateful for our dedicated sponsors, the volunteers, and members from 15 Southern Arizona fire agencies who give their time each year to make it happen.
Please join us at our new venue this year, JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort, on September 21 & 22.
