Shane Bemis Court is now open for play at the Rockwood Boys & Girls Club in Gresham, Oregon. The pair of futsal courts will support local youth programs and is open for community use.
Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis joined Timbers players Diego Valeri and Diego Chara, Portland Thorns FC goalkeeper Adrianna Franch, Boys & Girls Club CEO Erin Hubert, OPI board members, Timber Joey and sponsors for a dedication ceremony.
This marks the third set of futsal courts from the Fields for All partnership of OPI and PTFC's Stand Together. The project was supported by several community sponsors, including adidas, IKEA Portland, JELD-WEN Windows & Doors, KeyBank, Providence Health and Services, and city officials, including Mayor Shane Bemis who helped make the project a reality.
