Proceeds from April 5th event at the Vue in Corvallis to support Calapooia Watershed Council, Greenbelt Land Trust, Marys River Watershed Council, and Ten Rivers Food Web
Four local conservation and advocacy groups are teaming up to host Roots to Rivers, a benefit dinner and silent auction on April 5th, 2014 from 6-9:30pm at the Vue in downtown Corvallis (517 SW 2nd St.). Calapooia Watershed Council, Greenbelt Land Trust, Marys River Watershed Council, and Ten Rivers Food Web are joining together to celebrate the land, water, and farms that make the Willamette Valley a unique and beautiful place to live, work, and play. Guests will enjoy a delicious Mediterranean feast showcasing local foods and the finest local craft brews and wines. A silent auction will feature unique services and adventures such as a garden package including 5 yards of organic compost, seeds, and plant starts; a Benton County distillery tasting and tour package; a McKenzie River fly fishing trip for two; and more. The evening’s entertainment will include strolling minstrels, tarot readings, belly dancing, and magic! As the evening stars come out, we will enjoy the sweet sounds of the Portland-based three piece band Sagebrush Sisters!
Tickets for the event are available at both First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op locations in Corvallis, partner office locations, and online.
