Tickets available for annual beef feed
Beef is what’s for dinner July 20 in the Portola City Park. Hosted by the Portola Volunteer Fire Department, the annual Barbecue Beef Feed will bring good food and a good time for the people of Portola.
From 5 to 8 p.m., the department will serve as much top sirloin, salad, breadsticks and beans as a person can eat. There will also be a cotton candy machine to provide dessert.
According to Portola Fire Chief Henry Johnson, the proceeds from the dinner go directly to purchasing the bikes that will be given to C. Roy Carmichael Elementary School students in December. The fundraiser is essential for this much-anticipated giveaway.
Johnson says they are preparing the fresh beef from the Graeagle Store for an anticipated crowd of more than 300.
This is truly a community event, as River Bums donated the tickets and Plumas Bank donated the fliers.
“This (event) is how we raise money and raise awareness for the fire department,” said Johnson.
Department members went from door to door last week selling tickets for the event; however, tickets are still available at City Hall and Plumas Bank at $15 for adults and $9 for children.
Those who cannot attend may still provide much-appreciated donations at Plumas Bank.
