Fighting in the Fairways – Golf tournament benefiting the Harrington Family Foundation at Pumpkin Ridge

I got the chance to hit the links at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club the other day, although this time I left the clubs at home in favor of my camera so I could take photographs of a great new charity golf tournament. Joey Harrington, famed University of Oregon quarterback, hosted the first of what will hopefully be an annual event pitting Duck alumni against Beaver alums, all for fun and with the added bonus of raising a good deal of money for a great cause. To make things fair, Joey called on legendary Beaver defensive end, Bill Swancutt, to represent the Oregon State contingent.  There were many smiles on the day, and certainly a few laughs, but all of that will pale in comparison to the smiles and laughs the donations will enable for so many Portland-area youth.  The funds were raised for the Harrington Family Foundation, which works with a range of charitable organizations in the area, such as the Boys & Girls Club of Portland, the Shriners Hospital for Children and the Special Olympics of Oregon, amongst others.  It was a great event and a fun day and something I was proud to be a part of.

Go Ducks… AND Beavs!

There were definitely some lighter moments during the day:

Did you ever think you would see Joey Harrington giving Benny Beaver a kiss?  All for a good cause.
