A Message From Event Chair Shane Clark

Shane Clark, 2018 Chair

July 2018

Dear Friends of the Fire Service,

As we enter into our 12th year of proudly serving and supporting our firefighters, we welcome our newest sponsor, The Gary Sinise Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. We do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.

We believe this partnership is an excellent fit for our efforts to address local firefighter health and safety issues. A majority of the proceeds from the dinner, auction and golf tournament will go to the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation. GTFF programs help local firefighters who have been diagnosed with cardiac, cancer, and mental health 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.

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.

We are very fortunate to have Author Jay Dobyns as guest speaker during our dinner program. Jay is a former undercover federal agent, a law enforcement trainer, former University of Arizona football player and a highly-sought speaker.

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.

Sincerely,

Shane Clark
2018 Fiesta de los Bomberos Chair
