On Wednesday May 11th, the 9th Annual Portland Firefighters Association, Local 43 Charitable Golf Tournament was held at Colwood Golf Course on 75th and NE Columbia Blvd.
Off-duty Portland Fire & Rescue and Portland International Airport Fire Department current and retired firefighters alongside friends came out to enjoy the day and participate in the event fundraiser.
Raffle tickets were sold and prizes were given away after the tournament in a raffle format. The event was truly a success.
This year's charities are for PJ (Paul) Miller who recently passed away from cancer, Noel Prosser whose wife is still battling cancer, and the union charity fund.
Additional photos will be posted on Portland Fire & Rescue’s Facebook page.
