Where volunteering and generosity collide
Greetings from President Richard Martens
NOTE: The Heart of Gold event is SOLD OUT! See you all there!
On February 25 we will gather with fellow Wilsonville residents for the 16th annual Heart of Gold Celebration and Auction. The event celebrates two characteristics that make a community great – volunteerism and generosity. Each year we solicit nominations from our citizenry of those people who have distinguished themselves through the selfless offering of their time. From the many nominations submitted we select four to be honored at the Heart of Gold Celebration and Auction. At the end of the evening we name one of the four as Wilsonville’s First Citizen.
The event also puts our community’s generosity on display. Local business have generously offered their support as sponsors. During the course of the evening the attendees enjoy themselves by generously bidding on the items in the silent and oral auction. Nearly all of the items offered will have been donated by local businesses and individuals. At the end of the evening we expect once again to have received sufficient funds to cover the cost of our clubs many projects in our community over the coming year.
Volunteerism and generosity: helping make Wilsonville a great community.
