DESCHUTES CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY
4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Rosie Bareis Community Campus
1010 NW 14th Street

Local nonprofit, Deschutes Children’s Foundation, is celebrating their Silver Anniversary. The organization was founded in 1990 by concerned community leaders who recognized the need for a central location for children and families to receive health and human services in Deschutes County. From this effort, Deschutes Children’s Foundation’s first location, the Rosie Bareis Community Campus, was created. The organization later expanded to include four community campuses in La Pine, Redmond, and Bend. Deschutes Children’s Foundation gives rent free classroom and office space and no cost facility management to nonprofits that serve children and families. Over the last twenty-five years, hundreds of thousands of children and families have accessed services – sometimes from multiple organizations – at these community campuses.

The organization will commemorate their Silver Anniversary with an open house at the Rosie Bareis Community Campus on Thursday, September 24th, 2015 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. The event is open to the public and will feature music, wine, beer, and light hors d’oeuvres. All are invited to learn more about the organization’s unique mission to promote a community of services for children and families.

Scandal! Blackmail! Corruption! Full of Wilde’s well-known wit, rapid fire repartee and social commentary, “An Ideal Husband” is scathing satire of the British aristocracy filled to the brim with temptations, betrayals and secret liaisons. Sir Robert Chiltern is everything his wife gertrude admires: Handsome, noble, stalwart, loving, tender, and completely honest. But Mrs. Cheveley knows otherwise: dragging up a minor political indiscretion in Robert’s past, Cheveley plans to blackmail him into making her a very rich woman. Pressured into a moral dilemma. Robert must choose between committing another indiscretion, for Mrs. Cheveley’s benefit, or watching his marriage crumble if Gertrude learns he is not quite the ideal husband she had imagined.
