We play Bingo (with great prizes), 50/50 Raffle, Food and Drink Specials, Silent & Live Auctions!

All proceeds benefit free Breast Cancer Screenings at Panhandle Health,the Kootenai Health Cancer Patient Support Fund and Susan G. Komen of Idaho.

CARPER COMMUNITY FOUNDATION.
We are the Carper family of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and represent the Carper Community Foundation. The roots of our foundation started as a homegrown fundraiser in our backyard nearly 10 years ago, but through the generosity and support of local partners we have been able to expand our fundraising efforts and make a tangible impact here in our community.

WHAT DRIVES US.
Our dedication to this cause is in loving tribute to so many in our community that have battled cancer, but especially we honor our mom Kathy Carper. She lost her long-time battle to breast cancer in 2001, but her amazing courage and strength of spirit continues to inspire those her knew her. We were supported by so many in our community and this is our way of giving back.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.
We remain committed as an organization to ensure our fundraising efforts help those right here in our community. As such, we donate our funds to local community cancer foundations; including the Panhandle Health District, Kootenai Health Foundation Patient Support Fund and Susan G. Komen Idaho. The funds donated to the Kootenai Health Foundation will be used in the Cancer Patient Support Fund, which has the greatest financial need within the cancer center and aims to remove financial barriers that would prohibit a patient from getting the care they need. Often this money is used for gas cards, necessary pain medications not covered by insurance, co-pays, cab rides and sometimes even groceries or new shoes for kids. Funds also go toward providing FREE lifesaving mammograms to those who cannot afford this service, and breast cancer research so that one day, we’ll find a cure for this deadly disease.

Sep 19 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Civic Engagement Alliance is hosting a #CIVICENGAGECDA Launch Party at the Art Spirit Gallery on September 19th from 6 PM – 8 PM. We will give a glimpse of our vision and serve wine, hors d’oeuvres and ambient jazz trip-hop music presented by DJ Dr. Nashty. Quirky dance moves are welcome!

The Civic Engagement Alliance’s mission is to generate grassroots community engagement for the common good. Through collaboration and partnership, we organize nonpartisan, mission-driven campaigns to improve civic life. Learn more about us at https://www.civicengagecda.com

The reason to support the Civic Engagement Alliance is that we choose to empower through positive and unifying methods in a highly divisive and troubling time. We choose to build bridges and listen. We seek partnerships with organizations and individuals to strengthen and elevate shared causes. We recognize the reasons why so many of our youth and marginalized populations are not civically involved. We hope to provide the tools, education and inspiration to help bring people together and embolden new voices.

With your help, some of the things we hope to achieve are:

* Collection of 1500+ diverse Civic Engagement Survey responses
to give insight to the larger community on what people care about locally.

* Increased efforts for voter registration and vote by mail.

* Creation of a nonprofit directory to help recruit and match volunteers to meaningful work in our community.

* To lead the effort in creating an accessible and visual voter guide
with partners for November 2020.

* To bring the Civic Action Festival back to the community in 2020.

Come on down, make new connections, bust a groove, eat fun appetizers and discuss how together, we can build a stronger community.
