How can I participate?
This year we are offering multiple ways to participate.
You can donate online and bid on auction items online. You can ALSO join us at Wallowa Lake Lodge and hear about our mission work and enjoy a meal together catered by Chuckwagon Sisters Catering. Then, help us raise funds that night for our youth suicide prevention programs by hearing first-hand how our programs impact our youth and schools.
What will the program be like if I come to Wallowa Lake Lodge on May 12 at 6 pm?
At 5:45 PM, we will open the doors at Wallowa Lake Lodge. This will give you time to mingle with friends, have a drink, and enjoy some appetizers from 6:00 to 6:30 PM. Even bid on some auction items from your phone.
At 6:35 PM, we will start asking people to get settled in the dining room as dinner will start. Last chance to grab a drink and find your seat at your table. Dinner service will begin at 6:45 PM. Chuckwagon Sisters Catering will serve us a delicious family-style meal of chicken marbella, smoked tri-tip with herb butter sauce, garlic mashed potatoes with chive oil, spinach salad with oranges, candied pecans, feta, and citrus basil vinaigrette dressing, honey glazed carrots, and a lemon tart with fresh fruit for dessert.
Family style means the whole table will be served everything and you will pass the dishes around and share.
At 7:00 pm, the show will start. Chantay Jett, our Executive Director, will emcee the night. You will hear first-hand how our programs are making a difference in youth and our local schools.
