Every year, we lace up our golf shoes, dust off our clubs, and make our way to the American Concrete Institutes (ACI) San Diego Chapter's annual golf tournament as an official event beneficiary. To date, ACI has donated over $5,000 to FirefighterAid to help our programs and Firefighter families in need. We're so grateful for ACI and all our gracious community partners! We can't do the good things we do with you and your Chapter's support. Check out some stories from the years we've been involved with ACI San Diego Chapter's tournament!



This September, for the third year in a row, FirefighterAid was invited back to the ACI San Diegos Chapter's annual golf tournament at Twin Oaks Golf Course. As one of the three event beneficiaries, ACI generously donated $1,750 to FirefighterAid for our programs! ACI celebrated their 6th year as an official proud community supporter of first responders.

FirefighterAid had an information and donation booth on the tournament's first hole. We were able to share our mission with all 164 golfers and hand out t-shirts from our stair climb event. Each golfer donated $10 before they teed off at our hole. This is one of the most interactive fundraisers that we get to be a part of, and we really enjoy the opportunity to speak to every golfer as they come by our hole.

Along with our booth, ACI comped a foursome for us. This year's foursome was comprised of two retirees, Jon Handley and Greg Donnelly, and two active firefighters, Alex Elgas and Tim Roy. They had a great day on the course representing FirefighterAid. They placed 9th in the tournament out of 37 teams! We're so grateful for ACI and all our gracious community partners! We can't do the good things we do with you and your Chapter's support. 




FORE!!! For the second year in a row, we were invited back to the American Concrete Institute Annual Golf Tournament as an event beneficiary. Twin Oaks Golf Course and ACI hosts this epic day on the green. They allow us to setup a booth on the first hole to share with all 85+ golfers the work we do at FirefighterAid. They, in turn, donated $1,750 to our programs.

SDFD Retirees, Arnell Garcia and Greg Donnelly, showed the young chaps on our foursome, Alex Elgas and Brandon Hartley, what the game of golf is all about. Totally kidding - the young chaps cleaned house in the tournament!

We all had a good time and helped share the good work we do with the awesome crew at ACI. We've already been invited back for our third year in a row and can't wait to hang with our ACI friends again this September!


Beautiful day for a round of golf! This year, ACI invited FirefighterAid to be part of their annual golf tournament where groups of four golfers play 18 holes to benefit the nonprofits of choice for that day. We were invited to be the First Hole representatives and share our story, programs, and mission with all of the golfers in the tournament. It was a great way to spread the word about what we do, who we are, and who we help. Thank you American Concrete Institute - San Diego Chapter, for hosting and benefitting FirefighterAid. We're having a great time and making new friends!
