Heron Lakes Great Blue Golf Course. The Rose Festival Foundation and the David Campbell Memorial Association teamed up to raise money for their worthy causes with a golf tournament.
The popular tournament raised over $13,000 to support nonprofit programs. The event took place on September 30th.
The Portland Rose Festival Foundation serves families and individuals with programs and events that promote the arts, education and volunteerism.
The Campbell Memorial is currently located at the corner of NW 18th and Burnside and is maintained by the David Campbell Memorial Association. Constructed in 1928, the memorial is named after Portland Fire Chief David Campbell who lost his life on June 26, 1911 fighting the Union Oil Fire. Each June 26th, about 25 Portland Firefighters gather in the small park to remember the firefighters who have lost their lives in service to the citizens of Portland. The Association is actively working to raise the necessary funds to construct a new memorial at the east end of the Hawthorne Bridge.
Golfer were happy to join in support of these two important organizations.
