WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The Williams Volunteer Fire Department is putting on their 14th Annual Fire Prevention Golf Tournament at 8 a.m. June 6 at Elephant Rocks Golf Course.

The tournament begins with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. The tournament is a four-man scramble format. Proceeds will be used to support various fire prevention programs throughout the Williams community.

"It's our only fundraiser," event organizer and Fire Department member Jeff Pettit said. "We use it to purchase home safety devices and fire prevention materials."

The Fire Department purchases many home safety devices such as smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and carbon monoxide detectors that will be given out free of charge to local residents that are in need.

Participants can register up until the tournament day. The cost per four-man team is $320 or $80 per individual player. A hole in one on the 18th hole wins $10,000. Mulligans will be sold prior to the shotgun start. The cost is $2.50 per person or $10 per team.

"We have many returning teams and players from around the state," Pettit said.

A pulled-pork barbecue lunch and award ceremony at the golf course will take place after the tournament. Tournament golfers eat free and non-golfers can eat for $10 per plate.

Raffle tickers are available at one for $1 or six for $5. "We have some great raffle prizes," Pettit said.

The grand prize is a $2,500 Grand Canyon package that includes an overnight at the Grand Motel, a train ride on the Grand Canyon Railway and a scenic helicopter ride with Maverick Air. Several other prizes have been donated by local businesses in Williams.

"We have players of all abilities," Pettit said. "It's a fun all-around event, that no one takes too seriously."
