Friends, Gorge Owned is excited to announce our annual winter membership drive, Give Local, Get Local

Being a member-supporter of Gorge Owned, whether individual or business, is both an act of kindness and an act to effect real change at the local level. Your support is so welcome and important to GO!, and we honor that generosity by working on the ground every day to educate local consumers, to advocate for a resilient and sustainable local economy, and to effect more engaged, equitable, and prosperous communities. This month, we’re also excited to give back with this amazing gift: supporters who donate $30 or more between Nov 28th and Dec 22nd will be eligible to win a local getaway prize package featuring two of our favorite Gorge communities: Dufur and Goldendale. We’re looking forward to highlighting these charming towns over the coming weeks.

This year’s Give Local, Get Local grand prize includes a one night’s stay at the stunning Historic Balch Hotel in Dufur, along with dinner and a spa treatment, plus a guided tour and tasting for two at the brand new Dwinell Country Ales in Goldendale, as well as a wine tasting for two at Maryhill Winery’s Reserve Room.

Give Local, Get Local is our opportunity to offer one lucky supporter a Gorge experience that exemplifies the best of the Gorge Owned business community. Each participating business is locally and family owned, appreciative of their connection to the community, driven by their passion, and a vital part of our cultural fabric. Our thanks go out to these Give Local, Get Local sponsors for doing business in a connected way, and for their commitment to Gorge Owned.

We hope you will be inspired to give locally during this season of giving, and to partner with GO! as a member-supporter, whether as an individual, family, or business. Our thanks to all of our donors for enabling us to enter 2018 our strongest yet.

Happy holidays to you and yours from all of us at Gorge Owned!
