The community is invited to join the Oregon Community Resource Network to enjoy music and dancing as well as a silent auction and raffle on Friday, January 27th at Headquarters restaurant in Oregon from 7:00 until 10:00 p.m.
The area business community has been very supportive of this project. Items are being donated for a silent auction at the event. There will also be a chance to win cash with a 50-50 raffle.
“The Oregon business community has shown a strong commitment to the new food pantry building though their support of the Oregon Community Resource Network and their generous donation to this great event” said board member, Jenny Wagner.
Local band, Quest, is donating their performance to the event. The band will perform a variety of rock, blues, classic rock, and R&B favorites.
“If you like classic rock, you’ll love Quest” said Tom Krzystof, who plays guitar and provides vocals for the group.
Admission is $10 in advance via Eventbrite and $15 at the door. Money raised from admissions will go directly into the fund for building a new 4,300 square-foot facility for the Oregon Area Food Pantry. The total cost for this building project is $750,000. Recently, an “angel investor” has pledged to fill any gaps in fundraising provided the community raises at least $300,000.
Fundraising for this project began in earnest in December and has quickly seen results. Nearly $150,000 has been raised in just the last six weeks.
