Family Resource Center will be holding the Vision for Families – A Fine Photography Silent Auction and Soiree at The Riverhouse on Friday May 9 at 5:30-8:30pm. This event has a long history but had been tabled when the Central Oregon economy cooled. As long time board member and photographer Loren Irving explained, “We were getting more and more questions and interest from members of the community asking if the event would ever return, and so we are excited to announce that the time is right to bring the Vision for Families back. It seems like the community has spoken and we are eager to respond.
Tickets for the event are $35 per person or $65 per couple which includes admission to the soiree, drink ticket with heavy appetizers with a no-host bar. “We are looking forward to seeing some old friends and supporters as well as many new faces,” longtime board member Brad Bailey said. “We are also excited to introduce our new Executive Director Chuck Keers. Mr. Keers has been leading Family Resource Center since February as our highly successful and well-respected Executive Director Vicki Ertle retired after 20 years leading the nonprofit.”
