Grocery Outlet chose to support Looking Glass in their annual fundraiser - this year’s drive generated $10,000!
On Saturday, June 1st a group of Looking Glass supporters joined with a few staff members for a great bike ride together. This fundraiser helped raise over $2,500 towards our $50,000 Haugland Match Challenge Campaign.
The Richard P. Haugland Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation has offered Looking Glass an extremely generous matching donation offer - all donations made to Looking Glass from now through June 25, 2019 will be match 1-to-1 by the Haugland Fund - up to $50,000! Any new donors or returning donors (those who have not donated for 12 months or more) will generate a 2-to-1 match from this fund.
The 2019 “Looking Forward, Giving Back” auction fundraiser for Looking Glass was a huge success - everyone walked away from this table a winner. The Vegas Nights themed event was well received by 250+ attendees and the funds generated by this extremely benevolent crowd of supporters will help our youth clients and programs greatly. Among many special features during the evening, Jeanne Staton was honored with the “Guiding Light” award for her years of service and support for Looking Glass.
Thank you to Grocery Outlet on River Road for designating Looking Glass as the beneficiary for this year's Independence from Hunger program. This program brought in $4,000 to help feed youth in Looking Glass programs! This money will directly benefit the health of youth in Lane County.
For the entire month of July, patrons shopping at the Eugene River Road Grocery Outlet store will have the opportunity to make a donation at the cash register that will help raise funds for Looking Glass programs.
We partied like it was 1929 - and raised a ton of money for our programs to help Lane County at-risk youth and families build a brighter future. Thank you to all involved in helping make this event a huge success. From event sponsors to event committee members, attendees, volunteers, staff and vendors - this one really took a village and the result was nothing short of spectacular…
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is fast approaching - on Saturday, May 19th at Valley River Inn we will welcome Looking Glass supporters to join us in a night of revelry that will include live jazz, casino games with prizes, a fun photo booth, jewelry raffles as well as a live and silent auction.
