The Oregon Schools Foundation will hold their annual dinner dance and auction fundraiser Saturday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. at St. Michael’s Centre, 4001 Navarre Ave., Oregon.

Previously known as the Celebrity Server Dinner Dance & Auction, this year’s event will be known as “Frost Fest.” During the evening, students from Oregon City Schools will trade their books and pencils for white gloves and serve dinner and dessert to all guests as a way to give back to the community.

“We are really excited to host this event each year, as the benefit goes directly to the students of Oregon Schools,” said Brent Shimman, president of the board of trustees. “We also hope to continue to bring more awareness of the Foundation’s mission and goals to the community, so that our students are the ultimate benefactors of what a community can build.”

The evening will include dinner and dessert by Michael’s Gourmet Catering, a silent auction, raffles, dancing and door prizes.

“It is with great honor to continue to support the foundation that provides great opportunities for the students of Oregon City Schools,” said Michael Armstrong, owner of Michael’s Gourmet Catering and one of the founders of Oregon Schools Foundation.

The Oregon Schools Foundation was established in 1991 by a group of civic-minded community  members. The not-for-profit organization serves as a catalyst to bring local businesses and the community together to help augment educational opportunities for Oregon children. The foundation works independently from, yet in collaboration with Oregon City Schools.

Through an established endowment fund from donations, the foundation provides grants, as well as community resources, to support programs to enhance and enrich the educational experiences in our schools. Since 2005, the foundation has supported Oregon Schools through its classroom grant program, with grants totaling $74,406.

Tickets are $25 each or $200 per table of eight. Corporate table and grant sponsorship opportunities are available. Donations of auction items are being accepted.
