Thanks to 'Young at Heart' supporters

I am so fortunate to be able to publicly thank the Chamber of Commerce Leadership Lake Oswego Class of 2013. This talented, brilliant, outstanding group of individuals worked tirelessly on the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center’s premiere gala benefit, “Young at Heart,” on May 16.

It is a gross understatement to say that we could not have done this without them. They exemplified all aspects of leadership.

The group aided from the beginning in planning the event, creating lovely decor, procuring amazing auction items and lending their expertise in too many areas to list. They are a creative powerhouse.

The business community opened their hearts as well, donating generously to the bounty of gifts, items and services for our guests to vie for.

We also thank the attendees who participated fully in the evening and enjoyed the delicious gourmet dinner prepped from goods donated by Chris at Food Services of America, courses courtesy of GP Catering (outstanding servers as well), Five Spice, Jefe, Scratch and desserts by Chef Ricardo of Mary’s Woods.

Mary’s Woods was also the presenting sponsor, and The Bank of Oswego, The Stafford, The Hasson Company, The Springs at Carman Oaks and Step It Up Dance Studio were also patrons.

Donors included World Class Wines, Kelly’s Jelly, The Oilerie, Sue Griffin, Nicoletta’s Table, Ray and Brenda Grubbs, Ollar Photography, Dr. Laura Dahl, Wisdom Life Coaching, Tucci, Victoria Gardner, The Nines Hotel, Bannings Pie House, Barre 3, Blue Moon Coffee, Bob Jacobson, David Burch Photography, Crave Bake Shop, In Good Taste, The Olive and The Grape, Dog Club of West Linn, Dola, e.g. page, Best Western Oceanview, Elements Massage, Terrie Sheik, Eye Health Northwest, David Dahle, Buddies Flowers, CK Hoffman Designs, Lori Hildreth, Reininger Wine, East India Grill, Dr. Sara Biggar, Fairfield Marriott Lake Oswego, FuAsian, Glance Optics, Gone to the Dogs, Grahams, Grand Hotel Bridgeport, Jack and Agnes Hoffman, Gymboree, Hal Wright, Femke Paanakker, Steve Scheifelbein, Michael Helle, Tyler Smith, Lakewood Theater, Nike, NW Survival Skills, OHSU Dermatology, Oil Can Henry’s, Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation Department, Parkway Veterinary Hospital, The Coffee Shop at Seaside, Lori Anderson, Adidas, Alpine Outfitters, Lucky Me, Qdoba, Bark Zone, Pixie Dust Productions, Portland Walking Tours, Stafford Hills Club, Chaz Scarborough, Zeppo’s and Julie’s Travel Desk.

Lake Oswego is an ideal community in many ways and a major strength is its residents. I was honored to witness extraordinary support for those aging in the community, helping us reach out to those who need our services.

In Lake Oswego, we are poised not to leave a legacy, but as Mark Freedman of Civic Adventures challenged, to “live a legacy!”

Ann Adrian is the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center manager.
