Sunday, May 10th 2015 more than 300 walkers gathered at Castaway Portland in NW Portland to celebrate great women in their lives at Rose Haven’s annual Reigning Roses Walk. This Mother’s Day event began with reception that included wonderful mimosa’s, tasty treats and coffee, while The Groovebirds rocked the house with some live blues. Participants took their chances to win fantastic raffle prizes donated from local retailers. Post reception they headed out, red umbrellas in hand, on a beautiful 5k course through NW Portland that included a tour of Rose Haven.
The 2015 Reigning Roses Walk raised more than $80,000, which includes a matching gift of $30,000 from the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund!
Thank you to the 60 event volunteers and in-kind donors that made the day seamless and special. Our gratitude to the financial sponsors who helped underwrite the walk. Most of all, we would like to thank those of you that donated and participated, helping to raise awareness of Rose Haven as well as raise critical funds to support our work.
