Henderson Firefighters Benevolent Association Fifth Annual
Jeff Mann Memorial Golf Tournament
Event Commemorated Fallen Henderson Professional Fire Fighter, Jeff Mann,
and Raised Funds for Multiple Nonprofit Organizations
(HENDERSON, NV) – On May 10, 2013 at the Wildhorse Golf Club, the Henderson Firefighters Benevolent Association (HFBA) held their Fifth Annual Memorial Golf Tournament to honor Jeff “The Pirate” Mann, a fallen Henderson firefighter.
The HFBA donated a large portion of the money raised at this year’s event to the multiple nonprofit organizations they support. The remainder of the funds raised will go towards supporting members of the association and their families when there is an incident of line-of-duty injury or fatality.
Brian Wolfgram, chairman of the HFBA, says, “This year’s tournament was one of our most highly attended and very successful. As Henderson firefighters we are proud to commemorate Jeff Mann, and donate to multiple nonprofit organizations throughout the Henderson community.”
Jeff Mann Sr., who passed away in 2008 mere months before the first golf tournament was held, was a beloved member of the Henderson Fire Department. His son, Jeff Mann Jr. joined the Henderson Fire Department in 2012, and was overjoyed by the support of both the firefighters and their families who participated in this year’s event.
