We are excited to announce the Engage committee is hard at work to plan a fundraiser and clinic for OPRFC's charity program. The fundraiser is  scheduled for June 10 at the Temple of Music and Art. Money will be raised to fund this year's Engage clinic, and the plan is to expand Engage into a full blown youth program this Fall. Further details will be announced very soon. For more information about our charity, email or check it out.
