Please join us for the 2021 J. Pat Beaird Industry of the Year Luncheon, presented by Regions Bank, at Sam's Town Hotel & Casino on September 23rd.
We are honored to announce our inspirational, featured speaker for this year's event is Brendan McDonough. His extraordinary story of recovery, bravery, and redemption will leave you uplifted and encouraged to become your best self.
McDonough is the sole survivor of Yarnell Hill Wildfire's 3,000-degree inferno that created an unfathomable loss. The relentless firestorm ultimately trapped his hotshot brothers, tragically killing 19 of them within minutes. Nationwide, it was the greatest loss of firefighter lives since the 9/11 attacks.
His story came to the silver screen in October 2017 with the release of Only the Brave, starring Miles Teller as McDonough. The story is also featured in McDonough's book "My Lost Brothers."
Registration will open at 11am. The program begins at 11:30am.
This event is subject to change based on current local, state, and federal health guidelines and regulations.
