Weeks before the Ducks and Beavers face off in Corvallis, EDCO and Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend (BGCB) are teaming up to host the 2nd Annual The Civil War Rally & Auction at the Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend. On November 9th, this spirited rally will bring business leaders, parents, community members and alumni together in friendly rivalry and fun to support BGCB’s youth development programs as well as Central Oregon’s long-term economic prosperity.

And it won’t be your ordinary auction. From the moment attendees step out of their cars, they will feel the energy and excitement of heading to a game. And just like fans tailgating or cheering at a game, they get to kick back and have fun, while raising critical funds for a stronger economic future.

Tickets will be on sale soon! For more information visit the Civil War Rally & Auction website.
