TOAST-N-ROAST A GREAT SUCCESS!!
THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Second Annual Wellsprings Friends School Toast-N-Roast! You helped make it a powerful, delightful evening of community and caring.
Students, parents, teachers, alumni all shared their stories and their love of Wellsprings, as did our guests of honor, Susan Ban and Tom Ewing. Both are not only well-known in the Eugene/Springfield community but also long-time supporters of the school.
A surprise announcement of a $50,000 matching gift offered by an anonymous couple helped stimulate pledges that already have reached nearly 40% of the challenge!
Many people who attended were hearing about Wellsprings for the first time. Moved and amazed by the stories by and about Wellsprings students, the attendees are eager to learn more and to spread the word about what a remarkable community asset Wellsprings is - “a gem in our community,” as one guest commented.
SPECIAL THANKS to our Event Sponsors: Lane Forest Products and PacificSource Health Plans; and to our Table Hosts: Applegate East Medical Center, Eugene Mennonite Church, John Etter, Lisette and Tom Ewing, Gaydos Churnside & Balthrop P.C., KEZI 9, PeaceHealth, Royal Caribbean, and VOX Public Relations/Public Affairs.
