Fall is definitely here and winter is right around the corner. Join Valley River Inn in supporting Cornerstone Community Housing’s 3rd annual Pajama Drive.
“Cornerstone Community Housing, one of our non-profit partners, helps to get families and individuals placed in homes. Donating pajamas ensures that children will remain warm as the weather starts getting colder.” -Keri Brown, Senior Event Sales Manager
New pajamas of any size can be brought to Valley River Inn’s front desk and will help support this great non-profit. Donations will be accepted through the end of October. From our family to yours, we thank you for your donations.
Bras for Cause
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Valley River Inn team has teamed up with the Oregon Cancer Foundation to create a bra for cause.
“We saw this competition as a chance to help promote a local non profit as well as express our creativity and have a little fun. We have designated our bra the ‘Mobile Bra’ since it will be traveling from event to event to help raise awareness of Oregon Cancer Foundation’s Bras for Cause.” - Keri Brown, Senior Event Sales Manager
Each vote is $1 and the proceeds go directly to cancer patients in Lane County. Winners will be announced on November 3rd at Bras for Cause’s Girls Night Out. As well as announcing the winners of the bra competition, Girls Night Out includes dinner, live music, a fashion show, silent auction and more. Tickets for this event can be purchased at www.brasforcause.org
To place your vote visit www.brasforcause.org and find Valley River Inn’s beautiful turquoise bra. Voting ends October 31st.
