Some business organizations exist only to further their own agenda. Others, like the Parkrose Business Association (PBA), founded a non-profit organization, called the Parkrose Business Foundation, to help area students continue their education after high school.

The foundation grants several $1,000 scholarships each year to deserving Parkrose Area High School students to help further their college education.

The PBA’s big annual event ‚Äì the 5th Annual Parkrose Festival Cruise-in on June 24 (the ONLY official Rose Festival event east of the 82nd Avenue of Roses) ‚Äì is the group’s main fund raising activity.

And, for the second year in a row, Jon Turino, a Farmers Insurance and Financial Services Agent serving the greater NE Portland Area, has supported the program with a $250 check as part of the company’s community involvement grant program.
