COMMUNITY CONNECTION SUPPORTING FAMILIES IN NEED

AUCTION & DINNER!
WOW! What an amazing night September 19 turned out to be! Our supporters showed up in a BIG way and we raised $22,000.00 when all was said and done. Here are a few highlights:
144 guests attended
15 Bottles of whiskey sold out in 15 minutes at the Whiskey Pull
48 bottles of wine sold out in 45 minutes Wine Pull
50 balloons sold out at Balloon Pop
It was a super tight (and LONG) Heads or Tails game. Shane Dunaway and Robyn Cooksey were neck and neck. Each had purchased 50 necklaces. In the end, Robyn Cooksey won the pot of $1375.50 and she donated it BACK TO BAMBINOS, which means that we raised $2751.00 just in the Heads or Tails game. Thank you, Robyn!
Capricorn Catering wowed us with fabulous food, and Lynnette Anderson delivered again on super tasty cakes.
Over $2000.00 was raised in our Paddle Raise portion of the auction.
Of the 27 items up for bid, 21 of them went for over value. Some WAY over.
Every table was sponsored.
We gained SIX NEW BAMBINOS BUILDERS and had one current Builder increase their support!
Thanks again to our main sponsors: Basey Construction, Jeremy Santee-Malloy with Edward Jones, Dallas DQ, Myerz Media and Elegant Floral!

HELP SUPPORT BAMBINOS We are always in need of people who can pledge to send us a monthly gift that we can put toward our expenses. We call these wonderful people "Bambinos Builders." A pledge as little as $5 per month can still make a big difference.
OUR MISSION Bambinos, Oregon is a non-profit ministry that aims to reduce stress in the homes of Polk County, Oregon families by providing essential supplies, extra-curricular scholarships, and emotional support. As we demonstrate the love of Christ our hope is to impact families in such a way that their lives are transformed, contributing to a healthier community.
