Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Oregon
Receives Generous Gifts from Brides and Their Families
BEND, Ore. (January 14, 2013) – This past weekend, brides and their entourages converged on the Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend for the annual Central Oregon Wedding & Event Show to mix and mingle with wedding and event vendors from across the region. The cost of entry? A $5.00 cash donation to the partner charity or four non-perishable food items.
Each year, Incredible Events, the owners and producers of the annual show, select a nonprofit organization as beneficiary of the popular Saturday event. This year’s recipient, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Oregon, along with their local Future Farmers of America volunteers, collected over $2,600 and five hundred pounds of food. Kristy Krugh, Executive Director shared, “We are very excited about this partnership. Our cornerstone program, the Bend Ronald McDonald House® is always in need of pantry-stocking items, but especially at the beginning of a new year. The funds raised will support a 12-night stay for two families receiving medical treatment in Bend and the food will keep our guest families full for months. Our deepest thanks to the Chick family, Incredible Events, and all the participating vendors and bridal parties.”
