Auction items lined up for Oregon City Parks Foundation
The Oregon City Parks Foundation has announced a slate of donations for the nonprofit's fundraiser from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, Hive Taphouse, 13851 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City.
Foundation President Roger Fowler-Thias said the nonprofit's three years of operation "has been well blessed over that period and now, in particular, for our silent and verbal auction, to support the Park Foundation's city park efforts."
Hive Taphouse owners will donate $1 from every pint sold during the event. Auction items will include vacations at Black Butte Ranch, boat tours of the Willamette Falls region, kayak lessons, dog grooming, pedicures, native plants, landscape mulches, flowering trees and shrubs.
"So there is something for everyone," said Dorothy Dahlsrud, Parks Foundation marketing director.
Dahlsrud and fellow Parks Foundation volunteer Leesa Gratreak expect a good turnout and are pleased with the support received from community businesses for the silent and verbal auction.
Dahlsrud said, "We chose Oregon City's Hive Taphouse and Restaurant because it would be just that — a beehive of activity."
The event is targeted to support continued efforts at Oregon City's Waterboard Park and the gateway enhancements at Oregon City's John McLoughlin Promenade Park. Fowler-Thias said both projects have significant geologic and natural history value and await an opportunity for interpretation and education that funds from the event will help support.
