The 2019 Choice Adoptions’ Portland Picnic was a blast! We’re extremely grateful for the amazing families who came out to Happy Valley Park for the kids fun run, games, raffles and a time to connect with other families.
This year we’re especially thankful for the Whipple family and ITech Painters, who sponsored the entire event including the raffles, delicious lunch and more! ITech also donates a percentage of their annual proﬁts to help further the work of Choice. It’s families like this that make it possible for our organization to make an impact on the lives of mothers experiencing crisis pregnancies.
Our agency is more than just an organization- it’s a community seeking to serve and support all involved. The annual picnic is a yearly highlight, because it gives families the chance to connect with their birth parent advocate or adoptive family advocate, their home study worker or another family they’ve gotten to know along the journey. It’s a treat to have a day where families from across the Pacific Northwest can gather today, enjoy some sunshine and friendship.
Families also had the chance to win some amazing raffles, like a weekend getaway at Cannon Beach, a family photo shot and more. Meanwhile, the kids of Choice loved getting their face painted by Choice staff member, Brooke, participating in the fishing game, the family relay race and the fun run.
If you’re in the Central Oregon area, we have more amazing raffles, food and fun prepared for you! Make sure to join us for the Choice Adoptions’ Bend Picnic on Sunday, Aug. 25 from 11am-3pm at Compass Park (2500 NW Crossing Dr, Bend, OR).
