The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation is excited to announce two events for 2013!
Dillinger Days at Hotel Congress
January 18 & 19, 2013
On January 18, Hotel Congress will hold their “speakeasy” fundraiser for the ALF Restoration. The ALF is the 1923 American LaFrance fire engine which was part of the Tucson Fire Department fleet from the 1920’s to the 1940’s. It was at the Hotel Congress Fire that pushed the notorious John Dillinger and his gang into the street; an event which ultimately led to their capture by Tucson Police. The ALF will be on display on January 19 at Hotel Congress.

The Second Annual Poker Run is scheduled for May 18, 2013. This year’s Poker Run will support the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation’s 2013 Firefighter Health and Wellness Strategic Initiatives, specifically working to fund programs in firefighter cardiac disease assessment, sleep deprivation and coping strategies, battling MRSA and other attacking bacteria, firefighter physical fitness and injury prevention, and firefighter and family mental health and wellness. Information will be available on www.tucsonfirefoundation.com and www.facebook.com/greatertucsonfirefoundation in the coming months.
Please mark your calendars for these events which support the firefighters who protect our community.
From all the trustees of the Fire Foundation have a safe and happy holiday season.
