Chief issues challenge to golf for burn foundation

EASTON, Maine — The Easton Fire Department and the Pine Tree Burn Foundation are joining forces for Maine children in a charity golf scramble, and Easton’s Fire Chief Greg White has issued a challenge to all Aroostook County first responders to see how generous County residents can be.

The fire department will host the event starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 1, at the West Ridge Road Golf Course in Easton. Proceeds will benefit the Pine Tree Burn Foundation.

“We’re reaching out to other departments and first responders all across The County to join us,” said White. “It’s a family-friendly event, so I hope they bring their spouses and the kids. This is a chance for all of us to enjoy a little summer and donate to a worthy cause.”

The golf scramble is open to all ages and is a family friendly event. A donation of $75 is suggested for the sponsoring town. Multiple four-person teams and children can play for no additional cost. Pre-registration is strongly recommended. 

The Easton Fire Department will be on-site providing food to those in attendance at the scramble. The burn foundation will also attend with a table for those who want more information about the organization, and will have challenge coins available for people to purchase.

The foundation is a statewide organization dedicated to fire and life safety education by providing awareness, prevention through education, and by supporting emergency treatment of fire and life safety injuries. 

For more information or to pre-register, call Jennifer White at 207-227-8633.
