Join us in making a difference!

It is with great excitement we invite you to participate in a very special event.

Christmas for Kids of Lane County is having our first annual White Christmas Dinner and Auction Gala.
This extraordinary event is presented by Kendall Auto Group and generously hosted by
Willies Lebanese Restaurant, on Wednesday December 3rd, 2014.

Christmas for Kids is a non-profit organization that works to ensure severely underprivileged children in Lane County get the holiday experience they deserve. Our area has an incredibly high population of disadvantaged youth, many of whom live in shelters or are at chronic risk of being homeless. The objective is to provide toys, clothing, and necessities and lasting memories to as many of these children as possible (each child receives approximately $100.00 worth of items). The families selected are from places such as Boys and Girls Club, CASA, Relief Nursery, First Place Family Development Center, Womenspace and other local organizations.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Attend the Dinner and Auction on Wednesday, December 3rd at Willies Lebanese Restaurant. Tickets are $75.  Silent Auction 5:00 – 6:00 | Dinner 7:00
    We encourage you to bring a friend or colleague and your checkbook.  Don’t wait too long, space is limited and tables are filling up quickly.
  2. Consider contributing an item to the silent auction. The item can be donated by you, your employer, or both.
    1. Some of the ideal items that we are looking for to showcase at our event include: Dining Experiences, Vacation Trip Packages, Unique Experiences For Children, Fun Outings, Sports Memorabilia, Gift Certificates For Services, Creative Artwork, Sporting Event Tickets, Fashion Accessories, High-End Home Ware, and Wine/Beer Baskets.

3.  Make a donation to help sponsor a child or even an entire family.
