Community Spirit Abounds Here

Posted by & filed under Community, Web, Work.

One thing we don’t lack for in the Eugene-Springfield area is a commitment to make life better for everyone who lives here. Two upcoming events we’re helping promote underscore just how we do that:

You Play. Children Win: Get Tickets for The Great Rotary Raffle

It’s that simple. You buy a book of raffle tickets (25 for $125) and the money goes to help five incredible agencies that nurture children and help their parents cope with child rearing. And, some of you will win one of the prizes, worth a total of $44,780, including a new VW Passat, a $6,000 sapphire and diamond pendant by Charles Beaudet, a $5,000 shopping spree at Jerry’s and gift certificates from local merchants.

But, really we all win when children are nurtured. Check out the amazing work that each of this year’s recipients are planning! Consider buying a book of tickets from a local Rotarian – we have some at our office. They are also available at Bi-Mart and Dari Mart stores. Time is running out to get your tickets. Plan to attend the celebration and winners’ announcement on Friday, Oct. 14 at 5 p.m. at Sheppard Motors.

Nominate a Rising Business Star for 20 under 40 Honors

Every December, 20 of our community’s go-getters under 40 years of age are honored. Deadline for this year’s nominations is Monday, Oct. 3. You fill out a simple form, submit the nominee’s resume and write a one-page description of why the person is deserving. Everything you need to know is here.

Take time to check out all the winners over the past nine years. It’s an impressive list. Each of them excels at work, takes time to contribute to our community in a meaningful way, and has the potential to make a lasting impact on our community.

Mercedes-Benz of Eugene and Blue Chip, Lane County’s monthly business magazine, team up to present this awards program, which culminates with an award reception on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 5:30 p.m. at the Eugene Hilton.
