The 19th Annual Gala at the Riverhouse raised just over $103,000 for the Sparrow Clubs last night. 330 attendees dined on a five course gourmet dinner, and bid on many silent auction items. The event is presented by the Riverhouse Hotel & Convention Center and the Central Oregon Visitors Association. The crowd was entertained by featured speakers, Congressman Greg Walden and former Washington Redskin Quarterback, and Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien. Proceeds benefit the Sparrow Clubs.  Spokesperson Terri King says it was a great evening. “People were very generous last night. And the atmosphere; there was, there was so much excitement in the air. You know, during this economic downturn, people have been kind of more quiet, more reserved.  Last night there was just such a celebration going on. It was really an awesome evening.” Sparrow Clubs matches local children who are terminally ill with neighborhood organizations that "adopt' the child and family, helping them emotionally and financially through their difficult time.   King says with the tough economy donations have been down.
