Rose Festival and Regence Walk in Support of the Dougy Center

Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon joined with the Portland Rose Festival today to present a donation of $10,478 to the Dougy Center from the proceeds of the 2012 Regence Grand Floral Walk. Nearly 2000 walkers took the 4.2 mile challenge in the early morning of Saturday, June 9, to help Regence and the Rose Festival raise the total contribution to more than $50,000 in five years of Portland’s Premier Fitness Parade.

Newly elected Portland Rose Festival Foundation President Todd Johnston was joined on stage by Festival CEO Jeff Curtis and Grand Floral Walk Chair Liza McQuade to present the donation to Donna Schuurman (Executive Director) Peggy Maguire (Vice Chair of Board) and Diane Kinkade (Chair of Board) accepting the check on behalf of The Dougy Center! This donation is an example of one of the many ways the Portland Rose Festival Foundation gives back to the community, making Portland a better place to live and visit.
