The Firetag Invitational was created in memory of Jules Firetag, the first board president of Teen Lifeline and an avid golfer. A respected attorney, a giving volunteer, the past president of the Jewish Community Center, an action-oriented leader, and a good friend, Jules was an all-around champion for our community.
Highlights from 2022’s Event
With temperatures just below 70 degrees Fahrenheit and a gentle breeze on the air, November 11th was truly perfect for golfing at the 17th Annual Firetag Golf Tournament, proudly sponsored by MIND 24-7. A new minigame joined our Ball Launcher and Wheel of Fortune this year: a Drone Drop, sponsored by Core Construction. For the price of a donation, players could guide a drone to drop their golf ball as close to the pin as possible from 10-100 feet in the air.
Over 110 players and sponsors from Arizona’s healthcare and philanthropic communities made this year’s tournament a resounding success, raising $100,000 in support of Teen Lifeline. Read about this year’s event on LinkedIn.
