Portland, OR. Nearly 200 people gathered to celebrate the 4th annual “Together for Good” fundraiser for Nursingale. It’s Oregon’s only nonprofit providing in-home, skilled nursing care for families with medically fragile children, making it possible for families to stay together. Emcee, KGW news anchor Joe Donlon, enjoyed a moment with Juan, one of Nursingale’s clients. The August 19th benefit included music by Rock violinist Aaron Meyer, a pinot tower, live auction, and dessert dash. Total proceeds were just over $100,000.
