Murphys Restaurant Planning Poortinga Benefit

Sponsored by:

Murphys, CA — Monday the Foothills Restaurant on Hwy 4 in Murphys will be donating the entire day´s profits to the Jared Portinga family.

The 30 year old Angels Camp police officer of five years was killed in a motorcycle accident on Murphys Grade Rd. May 19th.

In addition to the daily profits, the restaurant will also be donating a check to Jared´s wife Susan and her three children. Angels Camp Police officers and staff will be on hand to serve meals throughout the day.

Last Friday the Bret Hart High School football team held a three hour on-campus car wash that raised several thousand dollars for the family.

A fund in behalf of the family has been established at Pacific State Bank in Angels Camp.
