ORA Gala

The ORA Gala

Our first annual Gala held this past November at the Waterfront was a success! It was wonderful having members of ORA and the community connecting over great food and music, all while raising money for the organization and hoping to win one of the sweet raffle prizes!

Dinner Tickets were $50 and also served as a raffle ticket. Extra raffle tickets were $20 and could be entered into your pot of choice for top-of-the-line prizes!

Congrats to the Winners!

The illustrious Golden Shovel was awarded to the much deserving trails coordinator, Josh Blum (…and a much-deserving shout out to his wife Rachel!!)

Besides the numerous volunteer hours spent moving dirt (or snow), Josh has shown his passion for the future of our trails through a lot of behind-the-scenes work as well. Thank you, Josh, for all you’ve contributed to our trail system and community this past year!
