Northwest Association for Blind Athletes to host inaugural Southern Willamette Valley Fundraiser, Go for the Gold

Portland, Oregon —— March 8, 2019 — The Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) announced that it will be hosting Go for the Gold, a Southern Willamette Valley Fundraiser, on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at Hilton Garden Inn Springfield/Eugene (3528 Gateway St, Springfield, OR 97477). Tickets are $25 each or $250 for a Patron Sponsorship. To reserve tickets, please call 800-880-9837 or visit http://nwaba.org/events/oregon/2019-go-for-the-gold/

This is Northwest Association for Blind Athletes’ first-ever fundraiser in the Southern Willamette Valley and helps to fuel the organization’s life-changing programs and services for children, youth, adults and military veterans with visual impairments across Salem, Eugene, and Corvallis. This event will bring together athletes, staff, volunteers, and community supporters to celebrate NWABA’s growth in improving the quality of life for individuals with visual impairments and the generosity of our supporters who have helped us get there along the way.

Guests will enjoy heavy hours d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and an opportunity to learn more about NWABA with fellow community members and philanthropists. All net proceeds will support Northwest Association for Blind Athlete’s mission of helping individuals with visual impairments build confidence, improve self-esteem, enhance physical activity, develop friendships and gain the skills, tools, and resources to reach their greatest potential in all areas of life.

About NWABA:
The mission of Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) is to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. A group of visually impaired students formed the Association in 2007 to ensure that people who are blind were participating in sports and physical activity. Today, NWABA is a rapidly expanding charitable organization that provides more than 1,500 children, youth, adults and military veterans with visual impairments tailored programming, which improves self-confidence and self-esteem, promotes independence, creates an inclusive community of supporters, and builds the skills necessary to succeed in all areas of life including school and employment.
