The Port Isabel Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting the 11th Annual PIVFD/Bob Harris Memorial Golf Tournament April 27 at the South Padre Island Golf Course.
For over 73 years the PIVFD has been an integral part in fire support, prevention and rescue for the City of Port Isabel and surrounding communities. The PIVFD relies heavily on donations and fundraisers to afford equipment and training material.
The tournament is also in remembrance of Fire Marshal Robert Harris, who was a victim of the tragic collapse of the Queen Isabella Causeway.
The tournament is a four-man scramble and prizes will be awarded for first through third place finishers, longest drive, straightest drive and hole in one.
The registration fee is $65 per person or $260 for an entire team and it includes green fee, cart, lunch and drinks at the event. Sponsorships are also available and more information can be obtained by calling Fire Marshal Rodrigo Garcia at (956) 943-3523 or Daniel Marchan at (956) 943-1242.
