15 years of soaring with the CEF
Dinner and auction marks non-profit’s journey
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Since its inception 15 years ago, the Camas Educational Foundation has given $1 million to local schools.
Organizers of this year’s annual dinner and auction are planning to celebrate that milestone, as well as raise $100,000 that night.
“This year’s auction is a celebration of the journey CEF has made over the past 15 years and where we are headed. We will be highlighting those moments and experiences that have led to the place we are today,” said Mandy Huth, CEF president. “Lao Tzu said, ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ We have come so far, step by step, and continue to travel, together, on our journey.”
The auction and dinner theme is “Soaring With CEF,” and will be held at the Pearson Air Museum in Vancouver on Saturday, Nov. 17. Tickets are $65 each, and this year’s annual appeal is a literacy campaign, “Everyone is a Reader.” The goal is to raise $1,500 for each of the 10 Camas schools, for a total of $15,000.
