Share earns $174,000 at annual gala




A total of $173,972 was raised for Share Vancouver on March 8 as the charitable agency held its 10th annual gala with a Roaring '20s theme, "Flappers and Dappers."

It was the 10th annual gala for Share, which cares for the homeless and hungry in Clark County via homeless shelters, daily hot meals, street outreach, weekend food for hungry children and their families, and more.

Share Executive Director Diane McWithey said the event was a "major milestone" as well as a record-setter for Share; the previous year's total was $164,500 and the year before was $150,536. The total was nearly a half-million dollars in 2011, but that was a special circumstance including a one-time challenge grant of $250,000 aimed at the remodel of an old bowling alley into what's now Share's headquarters on Andresen Road.Learn more at
