Chemeketa’s Hood to Coast team holds Yankee Candle fundraiser

posted in: Event, News article | 0

Stock up on the scents of the season and support Chemeketa’s Hood to Coast team now through January 9.

Since 1995, Team Chemeketa has entered the lottery to participate in Hood to Coast. While the team usually got drawn every other year, they’ve been selected each of the past five years.

“This is making fundraising more important as we do not have two years to raise the funding,” says participant Becky Beggs. “We are still planning on the fruit sales fundraiser too– this is not a replacement!”

From diffusers, kitchen items, car fresheners and more—the Yankee Candle fundraiser items range form $5-$125. Forty percent of the sales go to support Chemeketa’s Hood to Coast team’s race expenses, including entry fees, van rental, gas and accommodations.

How to order –

If you’d like to order candles in time for Christmas, please place our order by December 7.
