Charitable Partner 


Proceeds from this event benefit the Tucson Fire Fighter's Association.  


Through their Adopt-a-Family program they reach out to families of need in the Tucson community and provide them with a food box at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as provide gifts for children at Christmas time. Last year they were able to provide over 1,200 food boxes during the holidays and "adopt" over 200 children to provide the gifts to.


They also partner and work closely with the Southern Arizona Disabled Firefighters, where they provide support to families and individuals that have become sick or injured while involved in the fire service. Other partnerships with non-profit organizations in the community include the Boys and Girls Club, American Cancer Society, Ronald McDonald House, 911 Tower Challenge Foundation and many others. In the coming years they are looking at expanding this program to include the much needed and sometimes overlooked senior citizen population in the Tucson area.
