On March 3, 2018, in the Auburn Community Center at Les Gove Park, Terry Home built on a night of feasting, fun, and festive bidding with its auction to benefit Terry Home’s young people who are survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury. Emmy award winner from KOMO-TV, Keith Eldridge, was our evening’s auctioneer. With 100 active bidders and supporters in attendance, we were able to raise $24,000 for Terry Home and our residents. What a fun evening for all. With our ever surprising Dessert Dash — which was the Dessert Flutter — each table was asked to pick their best “flyer” to put on a pair of butterfly wings to dash off to pick up their dessert. Some attended for the bargains and fun but most came to help ensure Terry Home’s residents have the opportunities they deserve to thrive. We hope you will join us at our next Auction.
25 Years of Terry Home Show and Shine!
Terry Home’s 25th Annual Show and Shine on August 19 was a big success, bringing together many faithful supporters and classic vehicle enthusiasts. The event featured 120 registered vehicles that gleamed in the sun at Pacific Park, and many spectators came to view the impressive array of classic cars, trucks, motorcycles and more. Drivers were also enthused by the opportunity to celebrate a quarter of a century of successful Terry Home car shows with a kick-off cruise through Pacific, where the Show and Shine was held. The event raised $9,000 thanks to our supporters and sponsors for the event.
A big thank you to all who have supported this fundraiser, which has helped to ensure Terry Home can continue to provide excellent care to its residents. We have planned for some time that the 2017 Show and Shine would be our last in its current format; however,we are considering two scenarios for 2018. Stay tuned for more details in the next newsletter or on our website at www.terryhomeinc.org.
Terry Home President Myla Montgomery shares her thoughts about the Show and Shine’s transition: “This was an emotional year for all of us. In some respects, we were happy that this was our last car show and, in other respects, sad because this was our last one. We’ve come a long way from our first Show in 1993 when it was held at the Auburn Eagles Parking lot and there were so many years where we lucked out with unpredictable May weather. We kept saying that it never rained on car show weekend—and then it did. But our faithful supporters still came with their beautiful vehicles—wiping them off in between the rain. We can’t thank all of you enough for all the support over those 25 years. “
