Merci Beaucoup to the many generous people in this special community who supported our "Midnight in Paris" event on September 18th at the Best Western PLUS Hood River Inn. In four magical hours, we were able to raise (net) just under $90,000 (the most raised at one event in our history)....extraordinary!
Words cannot express our gratitude; what a tremendous way to kick off our 2014/15 campaign season. We're still working hard to fill the funding gap of what our local human service programs NEED to continue their critical work in our Gorge community. Last year we were able to allocate $185,000-- while the total amount requested by these local programs was over $280,000! This year we're ready to make an even bigger impact with continued support from local companies, organizations and individuals. It's incredible what can happen when we LIVE UNITED.
