Portland, OR. The theme for the October 16th virtual benefit, “Weathering the Storm” addressed the challenges many have faced navigating the pandemic. INCIGHT navigated its own rough waters during the past 18 months and yet the nonprofit stayed buoyant. Dan Friess and local TV personality Natali Marmion were hosts for the event, which raised $130,000. INCIGHT is dedicated to “Changing Hearts and Minds,” “Leveraging Obstacles,” and “Unlocking Potential” for those with disabilities through education, employment, and independence.

The event showcased stories of success and highlighted the important partnership with Hood-to-Coast Relay which helped keep INCIGHT on its feet during COVID by providing pro-bono office space.

The virtual benefit featured reports from remote locations such as Cape Meares in Tillamook County and Charbonneau in Wilsonville, Oregon.
