Our annual Toast ‘N’ Roast Gala is held every October and honors local community members while giving them an entertaining gentle ribbing. Our 9th Annual Toast 'N' Roast will be held on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at Lane Community College Center for Meeting and Learning. We will be toasting and roasting Michael Carrigan (former Executive Director for Community Alliance of Lane County) and Liora Sponko (former Executive Director of Lane Arts Council). Stay tuned for more information.
