Lights & Sirens Invitational

1DSC_1834Paramedics, firefighters and law enforcement personnel swapped out their defibrillators, turnouts and badges, respectively, for golf clubs and karts, to benefit local burn survivors—at the seventh Annual Harvey L. Hall Lights & Sirens Invitational.
The tournament is a collaborative effort of the Bakersfield Firefighters Burn Foundation, Kern County Firefighters Burn Survivor Trust, and Hall Ambulance Service.
The goal of the tournament is to raise funds to assist burn survivors with special needs that help them transfer from surviving to thriving. Proper care of the burn survivor requires a long-term commitment as they move through the many different stages of life, each with its own unique challenges.
The proceeds raised during this year’s Lights Sirens Invitational allow survivors and their families to attend the Phoenix Society World Burn Congress, and participate in recreational activities like Champ Camp, sleepovers at Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Morro Bay Beach Weekend.
DSC_1896This year, the committee chose to move the tournament to the Bakersfield Country Club, which proved to be a popular decision. The venue offered challenging play to golfers of all level.
Prior to the shotgun start, one hundred forty golfers enjoyed a delicious lunch by Outback Steakhouse, sponsored by Three-Way Automotive Group.
Throughout the afternoon, golfers made their way around the course, enjoying each other’s camaraderie and a little friendly competition.
At the end of the day, the golfers were able to unwind with a taco bar buffet, followed by an awards presentation, and the chance for one lucky golfer to win $2,500, by sinking a putt, courtesy of Cindy Elbert Insurance Services.
