Oregon Jamboree Meet & Greet & Auction was a success!

We are really thankful to the Oregon Jamboree for offering the Sweet Home Community Foundation a Meet & Greet Fundraiser event with artist Neal McCoy! Neal presented a great mini acoustic set and is so fun to watch. An auction followed the event and we had some wonderful people there bidding and supporting our community through this event. A signed Neal McCoy guitar went for over $5,500! WOW is all we can say. 

Thank you to those that attended and supported us as well as the Oregon Jamboree for your partnership with us!
