Eagle Scout Celebration
2017 Eagle Scout Celebration
Eagle Scouts and their families along with top community leaders gathered Tuesday, April 25th to celebrate their achievements, provide scholarships for collegiate endeavors and honor Dr. Joe Robertson with the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. The Eagle Scout Celebration was made possible thanks to event Chair Dave Chen along with the following sponsors: Cambia Health Solutions, Todd Construction, Western Pacific Building Materials, Gerding Edlen, Schnitzer Steel, The Stott/Hale/Edlen Families, Arnerich Massena, Columbia Sportswear, Davis Wright Tremaine, Frito-Lay, HGW, Inc., the Wendt Family Foundation, and the Frank and Mary Gill Foundation.
Thanks to the generosity of two Scouting alumni we are proud to announce two separate matching challenge gifts of $25,000 each! Longtime friend of Scouting, Jeff Chase invites you to double your donation by investing in the Chase Challenge. His $25,000, once matched, will support programs for youth in at-risk environments through the Cascade Pacific Council’s Community Impact program. And Eagle Scout, Bob Yokoyama has issued the Yokoyama Challenge. His $25,000, once matched, will grow the annual Eagle Scout Scholarship fund and help provide financial assistance to Eagle Scouts in their next stage in life. We are thrilled by the opportunity to grow the support for Scouting through Bob and Jeff’s investment and are certain Scouters like you will rise to the challenge and help raise a combined $100,000 for our youth! Learn more about the matching opportunities here, Chase Challenge and Yokoyama Challenge. If you are inspired to invest your gift will be doubled!
Hear directly from Bob why he was inspired to offer this challenge gift!
