Three best selling NW authors headline a fun-filled evening to benefit affordable housing
CPAH celebrates 15 years of HomeWord Bound fundraiser and 20 years in business as a non profit
Best selling authors Whitney Otto, Daniel H. Wilson and Kim Stafford top the list of Northwest writers who will be on hand at Community Partners for Affordable Housings 15th annual fundraiser HomeWord Bound: An Event of Literary Proportions, on April 5 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Tualatin Country Club.
This year CPAH is celebrating two big milestones its been 20 years since we incorporated as a housing nonprofit in Tigard, and 15 years since we began hosting an annual event with local authors, said Sheila Greenlaw-Fink, CPAHs executive director. HomeWord Bound provides an opportunity each spring for us to celebrate all things local, including our fantastic group of NW authors. Growing local is what we at CPAH are all about; we couldnt do this important work without amazing local volunteers and donors who support our programs all year.
