How can I participate? 

This year we are offering multiple ways to participate.

You can donate online and bid on auction items online and attend the live event.

The live event will be at Wallowa Lake Lodge. You will hear first-hand about our mission work, enjoy a meal together catered by Chuckwagon Sisters Catering, and bid on the live auction. To attend the live event, you must purchase a ticket by Friday, April 26. Tickets are limited.

What will the program be like if I come to Wallowa Lake Lodge on May 4 at 6 pm?

At 5:30 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 the online auction from your phone, play in our 10x raffle, or purchase a microbrew or cider from our wall of local breweries. 

At 6:40 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 meal of your choice - tri-tip with chimichurri sauce or honey mustard glazed roasted chicken breast or baked polenta with veggie marinara. All meals also come with rolls, salad, roasted potatoes, sauteed veggies, and dessert.

At 7:00 pm, the show will start. Matt Kurtz will emcee the night. You will hear first-hand how our programs are making a difference in individuals. Then, we will ask you to give generously as we raise critical funds for our mission work and conclude the benefit dinner around 8:00 PM.
