It was snowing outside, but it was a festive mood inside the Boys and Girls Club in Bend Saturday, part of the effort was to raise money for orphanages in China.  Robert Tadjiki heads up the effort. The celebration is also to raise money for echo, education for Chinese orphans, a philanthropic effort based in Bend. “We currently have one school, we’re opening up 2 more in the next month. And we’re really hoping to open up 8 more, based on some grants we’ve been applying for.” Tadjiki says the need is great: “You know I‘ve been to several of them. And they just don’t have hope. And so we go in and we’re able to give them hope and a purpose to live. Because we’re able to hire instructors who are able to give special instruction to these special needs orphans.” The kids at Saturday night's Chinese New Year's were having a great time.
