Last Friday, the PPA in collaboration with Central City Concern Alumni, Oregon Jewish Community Youth Foundation, NIKE Community Store, Comcast SportsNet, Soo Bahk Do, and Skate-Like-A-Girl participated in the Blazers Boys & Girls Club Family Fest Event.
The end of summer, Back to School Family Fest featured games, food, a back pack & school supply giveaway, free hair cuts, a 4 on 4 basketball game, and lots of fun. The afternoon wrapped up with a Raffle for prizes that included Nike shoes and gear along with 6 bicycles and 6 skateboards donated by the PPA.
Tom Perkins, Jim Habkirk, Ryan Reagan, and I, with PPA staff Annie Lamb and Angela Orr helped serve fruit, potato salad, hot dogs, and the fixin’s to participants, Blazer Club staff, and other volunteers. The weather was excellent, the food was good, and there were smiles on everyone’s faces!
