The check was presented during the dinner at Singing Springs Resort in Agness.
The funds are to be used in Central Curry County for dental screening, education and sealants as well as urgent dental needs of students in the schools.
The Ready to Smile program was one of the 10 regional recipients of the first annual HUD Secretary and Council on Foundations Award for “exemplary public-philanthropic partnership which has transformed the relationships among the partners, lead to measurable benefits for residents and communities and served as worthy models for other communities.” It was given for focusing on the prevention of childhood dental disease.
After accepting the grant, Shull told a little of her history, about serving Curry County children and the benefits they receive.
According to Alice Sandusky, board chair, many in attendance have requested advance notice for next year’s trip.
The day began with a bon voyage party at Happy Days Malt Shop with members of the foundation acting as hosts. Champagne was served, accompanied by hors d’oeuvres prepared by the board members.
Before starting the trip up river, two raffle tickets were drawn. The winners of the bags stuffed with Oregon products and pictures, donated by board members, were Linda Young and Margo Ivey.
Piloting the Rogue Queen was Jim Sorber, whose years of experience on the river provided many stories and information about the scenery.
A buffet dinner was waiting at Singing Springs Resort.
