Altrusa International of Hermiston raised about $30,000 from its Oct. 14 Auction and Oktoberfest Dinner. Money goes to fund projects in the community.


Altrusa International of Hermiston recently expressed appreciation to the community for the overwhelming community support for its Oktoberfest Dinner & Auction.

The Oct. 14 event raised about $30,000 — thanks to the generosity of all the local businesses who donated items and to the community members who attended the event and opened their hearts and wallets.

“We are extremely grateful to all,” the Altrusans said.

Money raised will be used to support many local projects, including Backpacks for Kids, Domestic Violence Services, college scholarships, author visits to local schools, Little Red Libraries and more.

As one of the largest clubs in District Twelve — which encompasses Oregon, Washington, Montana and western Canada — Altrusa International of Hermiston recently celebrated its 40th year of giving back to the community. For more information, visit www.districttwelve.altrusa.org.
