Friends of Rosaria,
Since 1912, by proclamation of the Mayor, the Royal Rosarians serve as the Official Greeters and Ambassadors of Goodwill for the City of Portland and the Portland Rose Festival. We are dedicated to community service and for many years we have supported the Portland community with much needed funds for special projects. These projects have included purchasing backpacks of school supplies for children in need for Schoolhouse Supplies, Inc., providing music scholarships for high school students who play in a school band, helping the Washington Park Rose Gardens rebuild an area of the garden and providing field trips for disadvantaged children in our Portland Public Schools.
Our service activities are funded in part by the Royal Rosarian Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and most importantly through your generous contributions.
Please help us this year by donating an item to and attending our "Celebrating the Century" Auction being held at the Benson Hotel in Portland on February 11, 2012. The links in the left menu will lead you to the 2012 Auction web site, the Foundation web site, the forms for donations, sponsorship, etc. and enjoy the photos from past auctions under "Auctions are Fun!"
The cost of attending the auction is $75 per person which includes your dinner.
It is through supporters like you that the Royal Rosarian Foundation "Celebrating the Century" Auction can make a difference in our community; a benefit that will enrich each of us.
We appreciate your generosity during these tough economic times and we want you to know that your support encourages our young people with love and compassion.
