WHITE SALMON, Wash. – The Skyline Foundation will host its annual fundraising gala Cultivate Columbia on Saturday, March 21, 2020 at the Best Western Plus Hood River Inn, in Hood River, Ore. The event will honor community volunteers Chuck and Camille Hinman for their decades of compassionate service to our Gorge communities.
The evening will begin with an artist reception where guests can mingle with featured artists, as well as view and purchase their work. Guests will also enjoy wine and beer, and have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items.
The artist reception will be followed by a three-course delectable dinner generously provided by the Best Western PLUS Hood River Inn and Ingrid’s Cheesecakes & Pastries, with wine from AniChe Cellars and Domain Pouillon, and beer from Everybody’s Brewing.
A live auction will follow dinner and include original art donated by the featured artists, a romantic sailing trip through the San Juan Islands, a hot air balloon excursion, a golf get-a-way, and four tickets to a Blazers game with lodging.
“We are thrilled to honor Chuck and Camille and bring our communities together to celebrate their years of dedication through the Cultivate Columbia event,” said Elizabeth Vaivoda, Skyline Foundation executive director. “Through the generosity of our philanthropic partners we are able to provide an amazing and memorable experience for our guests, honor an extraordinary couple, and raise funds to help us create healthier and happier communities.”
This year’s event is sponsored by Hunsaker Oil Company, Insitu, First Interstate Bank, Molina Healthcare of Washington, Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom, Stevenson Family Foundation, USI, Cerner and Bob & Heather Weisfield, and supported through generous in-kind donations from local businesses. Tickets are $90 for individuals or $700 for a table of eight.
