Fifth-annual DUDE Celebration and Fundraiser:

CelebrateABILITY

Of Course You're Invited!

October 1st, 5 p.m. 'til the party's over!
Ashland Historic Railroad Museum and Ashland Center for Transformational Events (ACTE)
258 A Street (In the A Street Arts Building Suite #7), Ashland
(Accessible entrance via rear alley way.)

Join us for munchies, art work, live music, silent auction, raffle, awards, prizes, and just about as good a time as we can get away with, and, of course, as always, our event is ACCESSIBLE! (through the alley entrance)

For the last five years, we’ve celebrated 'successful advocacy by and for Oregonians with disabilities' (DUDE mission statement) on a First Friday in Fall. It’s our way to say thanks to all those who make our advocacy possible. So come on over and join us on the Ashland First Friday Art Walk , grab a glass of cider and some munchies, jam out to live tunes, bid on great deals donated by our generous local merchants at the silent auction, win great prizes in the raffle, meet new friends, enjoy yourselves and stay ‘til the party’s over!

Did we say SILENT AUCTION? Yes indeed! A growing number of local merchants, artisans, artists and angels have donated beautiful gifts just in time for the holidays, and the proceeds help us stand up for those who can’t. YOU CAN HELP: Donate your artwork, craft goods, or gift certificate: DUDE is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit and your gift is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Call (541) 779-5151 or email dudeoregon258a@gmail.com to help us advocate for access and inclusion across the state for all, because everyone will join us in disability if they live long enough.

Again, YOU and all your friends are invited to join us at the Ashland Historic Railroad Museum, 258 A Street,(in the A Street Arts Building) on First Friday, Oct. 1, from 5 p.m. until whenever, for fun, engagement and a great time all around.

We will feature paintings from Studio Sfumato and other local artists, musical entertainment by well known local musicians: Hand in Hand Drummers (Afro-Cuban Drumming), Waterbound, Ax Prince, William Lawson, Milestone in Review (Bill Hahey, Craig Martin, Lori Plaxe, John Foster) and many more.

Thank you, and thanks to all our great volunteers and donors, this year and all past seven years DUDE has advocated for Oregonians with disabilities!

Look forward to seeing you there!
