As we wrap up the United Way Campaign this year, we can do so feeling proud! This year, CCS raised nearly $2,000 for United Way.
The winners for each event competition were announced at the Big Basket Blowout and potluck on December 14. Marci Rutten Holmes came in first place for her chicken tortellini at the Souper Social, followed by Tonya Sorensen in second place for her baked potato soup.
The bake sale winners were Dawnna Garrison for the category of “And the Oscar Goes to…”, Tonya Sorensen for the category of “Pinterest Fail,” and Marci Rutten Holmes for the category of “Josh Graves Look-Alike.”
Finally, Youth and Family Services won first place in the Basket Blowout with their “Hood River” themed basket, which included a three-night stay in Hood River. The Business and Finance department took second place for their “America” themed basket. Catholic Community Services Foundation’s Christmas basket took third – the basket featured a light-up lawn flamingo named Bob. Last, but certainly not least, the Quality department won fourth place with their “Night Before Christmas” basket.
Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to everyone who worked hard to make this year’s campaign such a success. A special thanks to Stephanie Stoker who has led the United Way campaign with Marilee and the committee for several years. Enjoy campaign retirement!
