The 1st annual Portland Firefighter Cookout, hosted by Portland Fire & Rescue and KOIN Studio 6, will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2011 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Historic Belmont Firehouse, 900 SE 35th (at Belmont).
EVERYONE IS INVITED TO HELP MAKE THIS EVENT A SUCCESS!
The cookout includes barbeque, music festivities, and silent auction that will directly benefit the Legacy Emanuel Oregon Burn Center.
“Off-duty Portland Firefighters will be cooking up BBQ courtesy of Noho's Hawaiian Café,” said Lieutenant and Public Information Officer Damon Simmons. “There will be a silent auction and firefighters from around the city will be submitting cookies for judging. This will be a fun event with good food and good music. It’s also a great opportunity to learn about the history of Portland Fire and to learn about the great things that the Oregon Burn Center does.”
Event bracelets to the Firefighter Cookout are on sale now or can be purchased on the day of the event. The public can buy one bracelet for $15 and children ten and under are free. All proceeds will be donated to the Oregon Burn Center. Bracelet locations for early pick up can be found on www.portlandonline.com/fire/cookout2011.
