It’s time for the Seventh annual Windermere Foundation Masquerade Ball, tomorrow night, October 22nd, at the Columbia County Fairgrounds and Event Complex, starting at 6:00 pm.
This year’s gala event will include music by a local favorite, Backstage Pass, a rockin’, party playin’ LIVE country rock music band that’s sure to get everyone up on their feet! The live and silent auction is pack-filled with a huge assortment of items to bid on, including a Las Vegas vacation, beach house rentals, fishing trips and so much more! Attendees will also be treated to several dinner entrees donated by St. Helens and Scappoose restaurants.
Costumes are optional but encouraged — there will be a contest! However, this ball is more than masks, costumes and dancing; it’s about helping. Last year’s gala raised nearly $15,000 which helps ‘fill in the gaps’ by supplementing the work of these vital groups. Windermere Foundation uses the funds raised at the annual ball to support local charities such as the Women’s Resource Center, Amani Center, St. Vincent Food Bank in Scappoose and a Chance to Become Scholarships. The foundation also donates money each year to area school districts, establishing a clothing and shoe fund for needy students.
Tickets are available at the door…individual tickets are $15, or 2 for $25. It’s a guaranteed great time!
