The Salvation Army’s All About Kids Annual Dinner was held last night at the Oregon Zoo Cascade Crest Ballroom. This event brought together hundreds of corporate, civic, and community leaders to learn about, celebrate, and raise funds for the Salvation Army's programs that target thousands of children and teens from the Portland metro area that are homeless, abused, or struggling to find their way.
The event included an auction, musical performance, story sharing, and delectable food.
Portland Fire & Rescue’s Fire Marshal Erin Janssens, Human Resources Coordinator Jim Fairchild, Battalion Chief Leo Krick, and Station 16 Lieutenant Dave and Firefighters Joey, Paul, and Sara were in attendance at the fundraising dinner to get an up close and personal look at The Salvation Army’s work with youth in the Portland metro area.
