On Saturday, June 18th, area residents and their guests will have an opportunity to experience the beautiful, mystical way of life in the mysterious land of Shangri-La. This Asian-based evening is the theme of REACH of Jackson County’s eighth annual fundraiser and will take place at the Country Club of Sapphire Valley beginning at 6:30 pm.
Shangri-La will be filled with music and dancing. The Gamelan Ensemble will feature traditional instruments and sounds from the Far East. The evening will also feature a buffet dinner, drinks, no-stakes casino style games and a silent auction featuring many unique items from the area as well as high-adventure experiences.
REACH is hoping for a great turnout for the event. Executive Director of REACH, Kim Roberts-Fer says, “We are asking for the public to come out for an evening of fun at Shangri-La to help assist REACH of Jackson Country with the funding of our core services. With this past year being our toughest financially, it is our hope that you are able to support our mission.” Throughout it’s 33 year history, this non-profit organization has been helping end domestic and sexual violence, as well as child abuse in the area. Crisis counseling, legal assistance, community education, emergency shelter and a 24-hour crisis hotline are just a few of the service offered by REACH.
