Thank you auction and radiothon participants!

United Way of Clatsop County and the Nonprofit Partners with whom we work want to thank Radiothon interviewees, 94.9 The Bridge, Hits 94.3 KRKZ and all the donors who got online and text to give for a spectacular Radiothon event held 11/11/21!

Just as valuable to the effort, UWCC also wants to thank auction package donors and bidders for supporting of the only portion of Iron Chef Goes Coastal that UWCC was able to hold this year. Combined, the two events raised over $22,500 last Thursday!

The entire amount raised will help improve health, safety and education in Clatsop County.

Iron Chef Goes Coastal is UWCC’s signature event, beloved by foodies, craft beer aficionados, wine connoisseurs, auction bidders and socialites in the community. In 2019, the last year the event was held, it raised over $100,000.

COVID has kept the organization from holding the event in its entirety the last two years, but with the support from the Samuel S. Johnson Foundation, US Bank, NW Natural and Columbia Memorial Hospital, the online auction component went live for just under a week selling 25 of 27 packages ranging from kitchenware to Golf Excursions in Scotland.

Radiothon was a new venture for UWCC, where health care advocates, law enforcement, public officials and educators talked about the health, safety and education challenges Clatsop County faces.  UWCC Nonprofit partners shared the ways they are addressing these challenges and helping struggling individuals get back on their feet to become self-sustaining members of our community.
