Last weekend as the forest fires in Central Oregon raged on, 10 Barrel Brewing hosted a fundraiser at its two Bend pubs to raise money of Wildland Firefighter Foundation. During this fundraising drive 10 Barrel Brewing raised nearly $12,000 for Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
Today, Thursday, September 7th, 10 Barrel Brewing in Portland will host its very own fundraiser for Wildland Firefighter Foundation. The event to raise money for this Boise, Idaho foundation will take place from 5:00-8:00pm where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
The role of the Wildland Firefighter Foundation is to honor past, present, and future wildland firefighters by helping maintain and grow the national monument established for those who have lost their lives, operate a financial fund providing assistance to the families of fallen and wildland firefighters and to injured firefighters, and partner with private and interagency organizations to educate the public about wildland fires and promote excellence and safety in firefighting.
Make sure to arrive thirsty!
