Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters served lunch and dinner yesterday to customers at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery located in downtown Portland, Oregon. The Rock Bottom Foundation will donate a portion the day’s proceeds to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
The division heads of Portland Fire & Rescue support the Fire Bureau's participation in events that benefit MDA. Annual events such as “Fill the Boot,” “Annual Tapping of the Fire Chief Ale,” “Portland Firefighter Bachelor Auction,” and “Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery Firefighter Servers” and other fundraising efforts have grown into rewarding traditions of Portland Fire & Rescue.
