Ignite the Light set for Nov. 10 at CCC

Fundraiser — Annual Chehalem Youth and Family Services event raises awareness and funds


Chehalem Youth and Family Services is preparing for one of its biggest events of the year, designed to raise awareness and cash for the longtime youth agency in Newberg.

Ignite the Light is slated for noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 10 in the ballroom at the Chehalem Cultural Center, Sheridan and Blaine streets.

“The complimentary luncheon is open to the community and promises to be a happy afternoon as CYFS youth take the stage to sing …,” said a release from the agency.

Networking will precede the lunch, prepared by Bon Appétit, and a program designed to inspire with presentations where youth, volunteers and board members talk about the work CYFS does to “ensure that youth have a viable path to education and personal success, and how it’s changing the lives of families in our community,” the release said.

The 2015 event comes on the heel of last year’s successful luncheon, where supporters helped raise more than $20,000 that enabled CYFS to “continue to sustain and advance its mission to encourage and empower youth and their families to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually, and reach their highest potential through training, counseling and treatment,” the release said.

Those wishing to do more than just attend can volunteer as table captains as well, helping to organize the event.
