So far in 2017, Angels in the Outfield has provided funds to send 153 to camps. We have provided opportunities to 149 children to participate in sports, cheers Tae Kwon Do, dance, swim and music lessons. We have paid for tutoring and computers to help with educational needs. Our kids have received zoo passes, tickets to OMSI and the Children's Museum.
Our goal in 2017 is to reach 2,500 children. We are happy and proud to tell you that we are on our way to reaching that goal. We are in the midst of the "Share the Warmth" campaign, led by one of our biggest business supporters, Perlo Construction. We will provide warm winter coats to approximately 200-250 children this year!
Your support allows Angels in the Outfield to do what we do on a daily basis! Any contribution you can make in this time of giving would be appreciated!
HELP US BY BEING A SPONSOR FOR THE 2018 AUCTION APRIL 21, 2018!
So far in 2017, Angels in the Outfield has provided funds to send 153 kids to camps. These camps consist of sports camps, horse therapy, art camps, music and summer camps. We have provided opportunities to 149 children to participate in sports, cheer, Tae Kwon Do, dance, swim and music lessons. We have paid for tutoring and computers to help with educational needs. Our kids have received zoo passes, tickets to OMSI and the Children’s Museum. We have purchased specialty wheelchairs to provide freedom for homebound children. Angels has provided the ability for kids to go on trips of a lifetime to Disneyland and Disneyworld. Our goal is to provide items and opportunities that will give children a sense of acceptance, confidence and happiness.
Our goal in 2017 was to help 2,500 children. We are happy and proud to tell you that we are on our way to reaching that goal, and will hopefully surpass it by the time the year is over. Our annual dinner and auction and the sponsorships we receive from businesses and community members allowed us to exceed our expectations.
We need your help. Can you be a sponsor for our 2018 annual dinner and fundraiser to be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018? The event will be held at the Abernethy Center in Oregon City “Be a Hero for a Better World” is the theme for this year’s auction. Our goal in reaching out to supporters like yourself is to walk into that evening with the overhead expenses of this wonderful evening paid for. We strive to reduce costs as much as possible, but the event expenses total approximately $35,000. We were close to covering our costs last year with sponsorships, and this year, with your help, we want to achieve our goal so that all the proceeds go to the vulnerable children we serve.
Sponsorship levels range from $500 to $5000. All sponsors will have their name printed on our Auction poster and in our Auction program. To see the benefits of each sponsorship level please download our flyer.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, volunteers and participants. You are making great things happen.
