‘Portuguese Kids’ Raising Money For Injured ‘Portuguese Fireman’

Facebook

They say laughter is the best medicine, and the local comedy group “The Portuguese Kids” are setting out to prove that with a special fundraiser Sunday afternoon.

The fundraiser is for volunteer firefighter and fellow comedian Steve Lopes, known to many as “The Portuguese Fireman”.

Lopes was injured in March after falling from a two-story roof while assisting a fellow firefighter. He was seriously injured as a result of the fall and is still recovering.

“Portuguese Kid” Derrick DeMello says Lopes helped “The Portuguese Kids” get their start.
