Benefit Concert Tonight!

Enjoy the incredible song stylings of Hood River’s own Makenzie Rose Bassham at 6 pm TONIGHT, November 15th, at the Hood River Middle School Auditorium.In addition to the concert, there will also be a bake sale and silent auction. You could do a little Christmas shopping and bring home dessert for after the concert!

The concert, bake sale and silent auction are part of a project that has been undertaken by this year’s Beginning Leadership Class at Hood River Valley High School – to raise funds for the Foster Care programs of Hood River DHS Child Welfare. A visit by Soroptimists Judy Jensen, Chavalla Lopez-Bassham and Denise Rehse Watson, who spoke about Soroptimist International of Hood River’s plans to renovate the Family Visitation Rooms at the Hood River DHS facility, inspired the class to take on this cause as their own. All members of the class have been involved in the planning and execution of tonight’s events, including Makenzie Ross Bassham who is a member of the class.

Tickets are $7.00 for students and $10.00 for adults; tickets will be available at the door. All proceeds go to the Foster Care Programs of Hood River DHS Child Welfare. Tonight’s event is presented by the Hood River Valley High School Beginning Leadership Class and sponsored by Soroptimist International of Hood River, Mountain Views Therapeutic Massage and Photosensitive Portraits.

EDITED TO ADD: MacKenzie Bassham ROCKED the house that night! Many thanks to her for sharing her amazing talent towards this cause! CONGRATULATIONS to the HRVHS Beginning Leadership class! Your hard work raised $2,500.00 to help redecorate and renovate the Visitation Rooms at Hood River DHS Child Welfare offices!
