Annual Fund-Raiser Sets New Record

The eighth annual “Passion for Polson Celebration” held Friday, August 5 at the home of Tim and Kelly Bagnell, generated $26,759, a new record for the Greater Polson Community Foundation.

The event also broke previous attendance records as 198 donors made reservations for the festive dinner-dance.  A live band, The Grateful Dads, traveled from the Sacramento area at their own expense and rolled back the clock by playing danceable rock and roll music.  Their lead singer, whose voice was amazingly similar to that of “The King,” Elvis Presley, delighted the crowd when he sang those familiar songs.

There was lively bidding for both the live and silent auction items which together generated $12,270, which also set a new record.

The 2017 “Passion for Polson Celebration” will be held Friday, August 4.
