2017 Crab Feed

The Naches Valley Dollars for Scholars annual Crab Feed was held Friday, March 10, 2017.  We held it at a new venue this year and it worked very well.  Instead of the Cleman's View Clubhouse it was held at Fontaine Estates Winery.  There was a lot more room and it all worked well.  It was a big success with lots of crab, potato salad, lasagna, coleslaw, garlic bread, cake and several drink choices.  We had 4  50-50 drawings plus drew tickets for pies, cakes, cookies, etc.  Students are a big help to us and they work hard.  All in all, it was a great success again this year.



2017  Golf Tournament 

The Naches Valley Dollars for Scholars annual Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017.   A lot of work goes into this project and pays off when we make several thousands of dollars for scholarships.  Last year we netted about $17,000.00.   We hold a raffle with many nice raffle items.  This is a popular raffle as participants can put their tickets into individual containers by each item.  A dinner is served and then we hold an auction.  We try to limit auction items to about a dozen...but often have a couple more.  Each year following this fundraiser, we evaluate to see what can be done next year to make it better.  We are interested in keeping this fundraiser as many local golfers look forward to it and it provides us with our biggest fundraiser of the year.   We are all busy getting ready for this year's event.


We have been involved in this rewards program for a couple years and it's been great.  Every time someone shops at Fred Meyer who is signed up they earn points.   It's like the points you receive and the community rewards points don't interfere with your points earned.  They pay us each quarter and it's been a very nice amount to add to our scholarship funds.  All you need to do is sign up online......www.fredmeyer,.com/communityrewards..........look for us by Naches Valley Dollars for Scholars or by our non-profit number 86172.  If you don't have a rewards card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store.  For more information, please visit www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards
