Fun & games for a worthy cause

It was all fun and games this morning at the Family Fun Center in Wilsonville, Ore., when KPTV's Good Day Oregon featured members of the Oregon Army National Guard during their "On the go with Joe" segment.

Joe joined Oregon Army National Guard Sgts. Richard Wirfs and Dustin Clevenger, and two recruiters; Staff Sgts. Erik York and Michael Siebold, in the bumper boat pool for some fun and mayhem. Even Bullwinkle, the Fun Center's mascott, joined in the fun.

If you want to view the fun for yourself, go check it out on the KPTV website, here.

But it wasn't all just fun in the sun this morning. Local radio station KUIK (AM 1360) joined forces with the Family Fun Center for "Freedom Night", which will raise funds for the Oregon National Guard's Emergency Relief Fund.

KUIK will broadcast live from the Family Fun Center starting at 4:00 p.m. today, and ten-percent of all purchases made by those who visit the Family Fun Center between 4-10 p.m. will be donated to the Emergency Relief Fund.

Visitors can also enter to win an Xbox, a $100 Family Fun Center giftcard, or other prizes.

The Emergency Relief Fund is a program designed for Oregon National Guard soldiers and airmen, and their families who are in need of emergency financial assistance.

Donations to the fund are tax-deductible, with proceeds going directly to members of the Oregon National Guard and their families who qualify for the emergency funds.

For more information on the Emergency Relief Fund, contact Sgt. Richard Wirfs at 503-584-3989. To make a donation, see the online donation form here.
