SUNRIVER ART FAIR and WINTER GALA.
The Sunriver Art Fair, sponsored by the Sunriver Women’s Cub, is a significant fundraiser for SRWC’s philanthropic mission. The 3-day juried fine art fair was recently named as one of “America’s Top 50 Art Fairs” and the “Favorite Small Town Art Fair” in the country. The art fair showcases original art from over 70 artists in the Village at Sunriver. In addition to the art, there is live musical entertainment on the main stage, a hands-on children’s art center, many local restaurants and shops to enjoy. All net proceeds from the Sunriver Art Fair help support nonprofit organizations in south Deschutes County.
The Winter Gala. This year the theme was Reindeer Romp and it was held on December 11 at the Sunriver Resort Great Hall. This elegant and fun-filled evening is our second largest fund-raiser of the year! There were fabulous raffle prizes and silent auction baskets! Here are just a few of the Silent Auction baskets:
- A week in Puerto Vallarta
- A week in San Francisco
- 2 nights in Pacific City at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda
- Sunriver “Stay & Play” night and golf package
“The Bad Cats” provided the dance music for the Gala.
On December 11th everyone arrived at the Great Hall ready for a good time and that’s what happened; great friends, food, music! Reindeers were seen romping thru the Great Hall — oh, that may have been an energetic Raffle ticket seller or someone on the dance floor! Thanks to everyone that attended, volunteered, donated items, services or money. You made this a very successful event and will contribute nicely to our Philanthropy fund, supporting grants in 2018.
