The Police Activities League of Greater Portland is hosting its 5th Annual PAL Benefit Golf Tournament, Thursday, September 21, 2006 at Langdon Farms Golf Club in Aurora, Oregon, 24377 NE Airport Road. The tournament, sponsored by Command Management Services Inc. and Travelcommand, is a four-person scramble with a 8:00 a.m. shotgun start. The entry fee of $100 per player or $400 per foursome includes 18 holes of golf, cart, gifts, range balls, food, beverage, a post tournament banquet, and prizes including an Antigua shirt. Additional door prize tickets can be purchased the day of the event. Dress code is collared shirts and soft spikes.
All tournament proceeds will support the Police Activities League (PAL) Youth Center. PAL is a nonprofit organization that works with local law enforcement and community organizations to reduce the incidence of juvenile crime, substance abuse, and gang violence by providing youth positive opportunities through athletic, recreational, and educational programs. “One of the most important things an officer can do is to be a positive influence on the life of a youth who may be straddling the fence between what’s right and wrong. You never know when that one positive thing you do or say will pull them in the right direction for good, and that is the really rewarding part of the job,” said volunteer PAL Sergeant Ken Duilio.
Space is still available for single players and foursomes. Registration forms are available at the PAL Office in Northeast Precinct (449 NE Emerson) or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to request one. Donations of cash, golf equipment, or other prizes are welcome and are tax deductible.
