Family Promise Charity GOLF Scramble 2019! @ Links Golf Course
Aug 23 @ 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Greetings! Thank you for supporting Family Promise of North Idaho’s Charity Golf Scramble. This year’s event takes place at the Links Golf Course in Post Falls on Friday, August 23rd

All of the proceeds raised from this event will benefit Family Promise of North Idaho. Our mission is to transform the lives of homeless children and their family. We are a unique shelter as we partner with local churches who host our guest families for a week at a time. The congregational volunteers who provide meals and a private space for each family are trained in the art of hospitality and confidentiality. In this way, the community of Kootenai County becomes part of the support system to those families experiencing homelessness.

We are grateful for you and thank you in advance for investing in families in need though out our community!

7th Annual Red Dress Run @ The Crown and Thistle
Aug 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Our 7th Annual Red Dress Run Charity event will be an epic pub crawl. We are planning on rolling through downtown Coeur d Alene and are reaching out to at least 7 locations to see about drink specials and such.

in addition to our pub crawl members of CDAH3 will also be hosting two other events that you are all welcome to attend. On Thursday night we will be holding a dress exchange/rental party. There will be libations on hand but you may want to byod just in case. Then on Friday night we are all wearing camo to go watch an amazing band, LDW, in Spokane. Both events are posted on this page.

Our goal will be to donate 100% of all proceeds to our chosen charity and for that reason we are only asking for a 10 dollar donation to participate. Every dollar of your donation will be given back to the charity.

Since we are focusing on raising the most money this year, you will need to bring cash for pub stops. In addition to the pub stops we will have at least one beer stop and shot stop which will be paid for by the CDAH3. We will mostly be in downtown CDA but will also hit some shiggy and the lake to cool off on a hot August day.

No swag will be available this year as we try to maximize our donation. Again, every dollar taken in will be donated. As always, we will be glad to accept as much as you are willing to give and we will solicit donations as we wind our way through beautiful Coeur d Alene.

This year our local cause will be raising money for a local teenager that was very nearly killed in a vehicle vs pedestrian accident. Nicholas Eloe is a local hockey player known to many in the community. On July 21st Nick was going to pick up something he’s been dreaming of…his first ever fishing boat. Well, he got his dream come true, however on the way home he and his dad stopped along the road side because Nick saw some debris in the middle of the road.

While attempting to retrieve the debris, he was hit by a pickup truck doing over 50 miles an hour while his dad was in the pickup truck.
His dad performed much needed first-aid at the scene but life flight was called in to transport him over 40 miles to sacred heart hospital in Spokane.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
