Cancelled: EMO’s Benefit Dinner & Awards Celebration

May 20, 2020

Although public health considerations mean that this year’s Benefit Dinner & Awards Celebration will be cancelled, our work carries on! At Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, we are committed to carrying out our mission to create a more just, compassionate, sustainable and peaceful world.

Proceeds from this event comprise a major portion of our annual budget. We invite everyone who would have attended to make a donation now!

Your support to EMO will ensure that we do all we can to meet the increasing needs of those affected by the pandemic. Please carefully consider what you would have spent on this year’s Benefit Dinner—tickets at $150 apiece, auction purchases, the Paddle Raise—and make a donation now to EMO in that amount or even greater. On behalf of all in our community, thank you!

And we hold up and honor our amazing 2020 awardees, whose courage, moral vision and uncompromising action have transformed our statewide community.
