For the second year in a row, Teamsters Local 117 out-shot the competition to snare the first responders’ award at the annual Breaking Hunger fundraiser.
Your Local Union’s Executive Board agreed to sponsor the team at the $500 level. All proceeds from the event went to benefit the Emergency Food Network. In all, the event raised over $10,000 to feed hungry families in Pierce County.
Thank you to the members from the Teamsters Law Enforcement & Corrections Division who participated in the tournament and congratulations on your first place finish!
