Children's Center announces fifth-annual Healing Garden Gala on Sept. 15

Children’s Center will host its fifth-annual Healing Garden Gala on Sept. 15 at The Oregon Golf Club in West Linn.

Presented by Airstream Adventures Northwest, this event allows community members throughout the region to stand united in the fight against child abuse.

This year’s gala will bring together 250 community supporters, businesses and organizations for a silent and live auction, with hors d’oeuvres, dinner and live music, all to support the Children’s Center’s services for abused and neglected children.

The reception and silent auction will take place from 6-7:30 p.m., with the opportunity to win items such as a private tour and tasting to the Maryhill Winery and amphitheater, an autographed electric guitar from KINK Radio with exclusive tickets to the Skype Live Studio Lounge, Portland Center Stage tickets and more.

Guests will have the opportunity to step up their level of giving for the $15,000 challenge match presented by Bob’s Red Mill as part of a call to action to encourage leadership on child sex abuse prevention and outreach initiatives in Clackamas County.

Steve Dunn of KATU Channel 2 News will emcee the evening’s program, which will include a special guest presentation from Denisha Craig, a parent and Stewards of Children-certified facilitator. Guests will also hear from Children’s Center’s new executive director, Tom Soma, and board member Ted Davis, CEO of Airstream Adventures Northwest.

Tables of 10 can be purchased for $1,250. A limited number of individual seats are also available for $125. The Oregon Golf Club is located at 25700 S.W. Petes Mountain Road in West Linn.
