Our 2019 Black & White Holiday Gala - Holiday Dinner, Silent Auction and Dance - Took place
on Friday, November 15th at The Riverhouse Convention Center.
We are excited to report that this year's oral auction was being replaced by a live band - Precious Byrd/HighStreet Band combo! It was a big hit and we will definitely repeat this in 2020. In addition to music and dancing the evening included a tasty plated dinner, Della's Dessert Dash, a lively Silent Auction and a 50/50 drawing. This is a great opportunity to get a head start on your holiday gift shopping! This year's theme was Black & White - all captured by the photo booth hosted by DaShoot's Photography.
Our annual Holiday Dinner and Auction is a both a fun and lively function which also serves as one of our primary fundraisers. This year's "Raise the Paddle" benefited The Giving Plate which provides food to over 3,000 food insecure individuals a month, through three hunger-relief programs. With your help we raised over $11,000 for this very worthy cause! Last year the proceeds from our "Raise the Paddle" went to two very worthy non-profits; Buelah's Place to support their transitional housing programs for young adults aging out of foster care, and Adler's Voice to purchase communication devices. Other auction proceeds will fund a variety of Quota endeavors that support our local hearing & speech impaired residents as well as programs for disadvantaged women and children in Central Oregon.
To be considered for future events, groups can submit their requests using Funding Request Form for groups found on our Services page.
To attend or donate, reutrn to our site again in the late summer. In the meantime, you can visit our TSOpage and get involved with our yearly golf tournament!
