The B.U.L.L. Session was conceived by local business leaders in 1991 as a way of bringing representatives from various industries together with one common goal: to raise money for children’s charities. Since then, the B.U.L.L. Session has become one of Oregon’s largest charity events and has raised more than $6.8 million for our nonprofit partners.
Made up of Business, Union, and Labor Leaders, the first B.U.L.L. Session Golf Tournament was held at the Resort at the Mountain, ultimately raising $5,000 – which was donated to Shriners Hospital for Children in Portland. While the donation was small that first year, a fire had been ignited. The next year, $20,000 was raised. Embraced by the local Pacific Northwest Business, Union and Labor communities, the BU.L.L. Session continues to thrive as it enters its 30th year.
While the event has grown in size, its mission remains the same. To unite the communities of Business, Union and Labor Leaders while helping improve the lives of local children. We do this by supporting our six nonprofit partner organizations: Albertina Kerr’s Crisis Psychiatric Care Center, Gales Creek Camp Foundation, March of Dimes, Shriners Hospital for Children – Portland, Swindells Resource Center at Providence Child Center, and Wheel to Walk Foundation.
