It is a Friday night. TGIF! After a long hard week, you deserve to take a break from the kitchen, and go out to eat. Tonight, you can do just that, and support a wonderful organization right here in our community at the same time.
The Portland Community Fund Association (PCFA) is hosting a burger night fundraiser at the VFW tonight from 5:00-8:00. For $9, you get a delicious burger, fries, water, and a dessert.
According to the PCFA website, www.portlandcommunityfund.org, “Part of the mission of the Portland Community Fund is to provide grants to nonprofit organizations that serve those who live in the Portland School District.
