Tickets on sale for MAC Bash


   The Madras Aquatic Center Trust will host its third annual MAC Bash on Friday, Oct. 19, at the Madras Aquatic Center.
   A spin-off from the successful "Leave your Mark on the MAC" fundraising event in 2010, The MAC Bash is an event to honor the MAC Trust's generous donors and supporters.
   The MAC Bash is the signature event for the MAC Trust and its "First 100" fundraising campaign.
   The lobby of the Madras Aquatic Center will be tastefully decorated and compliment the smart casual attire of the guests.
   Guests will enjoy live music by George Klos, catering from Great Earth and an assortment of fine wines and beers from around the region.
   More than 80 people attended last year's MAC Bash. The event garnered $22,000 in donations from local individuals and was met with a $10,000 match by the Oregon Community Foundation.
   Proceeds from the event benefit the Madras Aquatic Center's aquatic and recreation programming.
   This year's event is open to the community. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Madras Aquatic Center at 1195 S.E. Kemper Way or online at www.macaquatic.com.
