Good eggs, good tunes … and a good cause

The Rotary Club of Wilsonville is providing the breakfast as a community service and entertainers are donating their time and talent. We ask that you give what you can to support the cause. A good rule of thumb might be $10 per individual or $25 per family.
You can give your donation at the door via cash, check or credit card, or you can donate in advance online by using the PayPal button below (major credit cards accepted). Checks should be made out to Wilsonville Rotary Foundation with “Live Eggs” in the memo, and can be mailed to Rotary Club of Wilsonville, P.O. Box 362, Wilsonville, OR 97070.
About the event
The Rotary Club of Wilsonville is holding a special breakfast with live music to benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey, the recent Oregon fires and, if necessary, Hurricane Irma. Playfully dubbed “Live Eggs,” the event will feature local musicians along with the club’s signature build-your-own omelets and secret recipe pancakes.
The event will be held from 7–11 a.m. Saturday, September 16 in the cafeteria at Wood Middle School, 11055 S.W. Wilsonville Road, Wilsonville, Oregon. (Arrive anytime the event is open and stay as long as you like to hear the music.) Admission will be per individual or family, on a donate-what-you-will basis. Those attending can enjoy omelets or scrambled eggs, pancakes, juice and coffee.
“The Rotary Club of Wilsonville has a long history of responding to disasters, and the community response always has been great,” Club President Tim Crowley said. “We did a breakfast to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina some 12 years ago, and many years earlier, one to benefit victims of an apartment fire in Wilsonville. Both times we had large turnouts, so we decided to do it again.”
Proceeds from the breakfast will be distributed by the Wilsonville Rotary Foundation to selected organizations helping victims of Hurricane Harvey, the recent Oregon fires, and potentially Hurricane Irma.
“Initially our focus was on Hurricane Harvey,” Crowley said. “People started talking about helping with the Oregon fires and Irma, and the event grew from there.”
To help attract and entertain crowds, different musicians will perform acoustic, coffeehouse-style sets throughout the morning from Whiskey Darlings, Jane Deaux, Christina Cooper and Joshua Bennett.
