GOLD BEACH — Curry Health Foundation (CHF) was on track to equaling last years donations of $25,000 to help bankroll county wide health care causes.
“Hypnotize the Night” was the name of this year’s CHF annual party, with a Mardi Gras theme, and featured a Hollywood red-carpet greeting, complete with silhouetted paparazzi who welcomed Curry County donors to a dinner served by the Friends of the Fair in Docia Sweet Hall Saturday night.
Concert organizer Jesse Orozco will perform and serve as MC during the fundraising event.
More than a dozen hip-hop artists are set to perform at the second annual Southern Oregon Hip-Hop and Rock Benefit Concert in Brookings on Saturday, April 5.
The all-ages concert, which benefits the Community Helpers Food Bank in Brookings, is the brainchild of 19-year-old hip-hop musician Jesse Orozco. Last year’s event resulted in a packed theater with fans who donated $289 and 10 grocery bags of canned food.
