Arizona communities information and referral resources for health, human and emergency services for nearly 43 years.  In 2006 the CIR 24 Hour Help Hotline responded to 259,341 calls for help and anticipates exceeding this number for 2007.
 

The event has captured some major sponsors already by receiving support from General Dynamics, First National Bank of
Arizona, SRP and The Thunderbirds Charities who donated a 2008 FBR Open Package including entry for four guests for all seven days of the upcoming event.  Single players, foursomes and select corporate sponsorships are still available.
