Oregon City's Rae Gordon raises more than $1,200 for seniors
When award-winning Oregon City-based singer Rae Gordon played a special Aug. 24 concert in Oak Grove, the Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County made more than a dozen new friends and more than $1,200.
The third-annual "Sipping for Seniors" wine and beer tasting event at Gray Gables Estate included two tickets to an upcoming Oregon Ducks football game, donated by Wells Fargo.
Named the best female vocalist for the past three years by the Cascade Blues Association, Gordon and her band recently placed third in an international blues competition in Memphis.
For 45 years the Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County has provided free or low-cost services for home-bound, frail, vulnerable and geographically isolated individuals.
