Rally for the Future
Weeks before the Ducks and Beavers face off in Corvallis, EDCO and Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend (BGCB) will team up to host the Third Annual Civil War Rally & Auction at the Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend. This spirited rally brings business leaders, parents, community members and alumni together in friendly rivalry and fun to support BGCB’s youth development programs as well as Central Oregon’s long-term economic prosperity.
And this isn’t your ordinary auction. From the moment attendees step out of their cars, they feel the energy and excitement of heading to a game. Just like fans tailgating or cheering at a game, they get to kick back and have fun, while raising critical funds for kids, families and a stronger economic future.
The event is modeled after a similar Civil War auction held in Salem for the past 12 years that benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Salem, Marion and Polk Counties. Last year, the Salem auction raised over $350,000 in one evening for their youth development programs and initiatives. That kind of success led the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend and EDCO to bring something similar to Central Oregon.
