We will be hosting a chalk drawing contest on Saturday September 24th at Oktoberfest here in Priest River. Bring your kiddos down to draw on the sidewalk and try to win the prize! It’s fun for the whole family with five age groups to be judged separately. Contest starts at 12:00 and ends at 2:00
Here is a video that Kari Thompson lovingly put together for us for a grant we’re applying for.
Did you know we have a YouTube channel? No? (I don’t think our exec director knew either. ) It’s a new thing… We gotta get noticed somehow! We’ll be posting some videos here and there, on occasion.
A quick music video to showcase Priest River Ministries.
KUDOS Kari Thompson for making this wonderful video! Thank you!
Music is “You’ll Never Be Alone” by Capital Kings, used in Fair Use for educational purposes only.
THANK YOU KARI!
A huge thank you to our donors for Idaho Gives– we will be planning on making it again next year!
We’re participating this year in Idaho Gives coming up May 1st 2014. If you don’t know what Idaho Gives is… in short, it’s an online fundraising day for all the non-profits located across Idaho. This is the first year we are participating and we hope you’ll join us! http://www.idahononprofits.org/idaho-gives Check it out!
You can donate to us on May 1st at our Razoo fundraiser right here: http://www.razoo.com/story/Priest-River-Ministries and you can even SCHEDULE a donation to occur on that day beforehand! Like… today!
EACH DONATION you make enters us into an additional CASH PRIZE through the Award Pool!
“To make Idaho Gives fun, an award pool of $48,000 will be up for grabs on May Pacific Source 1. Thanks to our generous sponsors, that is nearly $10,000 more than last year. Awards will be giving to nonprofits with the largest number of unique donors in three different categories – small, medium and large nonprofits. In addition, random awards – Golden Tickets, including the special “5×5” Golden Tickets, and Donor Appreciation Awards – will also help nonprofits add to the success of the day. Cash amounts, hours and other specifics are outlined in the Award Pool”… Details linked here! https://inc.memberclicks.net/assets/idgives/award%20pool%20description.pdf
We will also be participating in the Idaho Gives event in Bonner County… details will be added on the Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/idahogivesbonnercounty

In 2013, 135 women and children sought refuge in Ruth’s House and Esther’s House domestic violence shelters. The money donated from our race helped to keep them warm, fed, and safe. I *know* you want to be a part of that for 2014!
All Star Jump did an amazing job with face painting and balloon creations last year — and they’ve been booked again for 2014! This run is truly a family event!
