Golf Outing – This is PTW’s largest fundraising event and is held annually in September. Those interested may join us for a fun day of golf including lunch, cocktail hour, and dinner banquet. If you are not a golfer, we invite anyone to join us for the evening. At the dinner, attendees and guests have an opportunity to learn more about PTW and to participate in a live “auction” to help PTW acquire much needed state of the art equipment and other items. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Beefsteak – This is PTW’s newest event and has become an instant hit. We invite everyone to join us for this social night out. Attendees can enjoy beefsteak, build bread towers, and see if luck is on their side for our 50/50 raffle. The PTW Beefsteak will be held on November 3, 2018 at the Bloomingdale Fireman’s Hall.
