Golf tournaments to be held in Yuma for victims of Yarnell Hill Fire


YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) – A golf tournament will be held in Yuma next month to raise  money to benefit the victims of the Yarnell Hill Fire—as well as the families of the fallen Granite Mountain Hot Shots.

In the midst of last month's wildfire that killed 19 Arizona firefighters and burned hundreds of home, several local firefighters went to Prescott to help out.

But now, the entire community of Yuma is being called on to help the families of their fallen  comrades.

First responders and law enforcement will be hosting a four-course golf tournament on August  10th to benefit the victims of the fire.

Registration begins at 7:00 am.

The cost is $75 per player, or $300 per team.

The entry fee includes green and cart fees, a t-shirt and an entry to Waylon's Water World after the golf tournament.

Firefighters say there will also be a children's putt-putt tournament on August 10th. Donations will be accepted.

The money raised will be donated to the families of the Granite Mountain Hot Shots in care of Precott Firefighters Charities Inc., a non-profit charity.

Registration forms can be found at Ceremonies to memorialize the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshot crew members who lost their  lives will be held after the golf tournaments.

The ceremonies will begin at 2:00 pm, at Waylon's Water World.

U.S Customs and Border Patrol's Honor Guard, United Yuma Fire Fighters Association Bag  Pipes, Rural Metro Fire and Yuma Fire Department will be in attendance.
