Silverton Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center

Judy's Party - A Legacy of Love

Judys Party

The Silverton Chamber of Commerce is spearheading a new community event – an annual fundraiser that is designed to help support multiple organizations while honoring a woman who defined volunteerism in our area.

Judy Schmidt lived a life of service to this community, channeling her work through organizations such as the Chamber, Silverton Together, Silver Falls Family YMCA, Silverton Kiwanis Club, Silverton Hospital Auxiliary, and Silverton City Council.  She never said no, and she worked tirelessly to raise the funds necessary for these and other groups (as well as numerous projects) to be successful. 

On Saturday, October 24, the Chamber will host the first annual Judy’s Party.  Planned at the Festhalle in Mt. Angel, the event will feature a “Bite of Silverton” approach to appetizers, an oral auction, and a silent auction.  Live music will inspire attendees to dance if they so choose.  All ages are welcome.

Tickets - $35 are available online here under "events" or at the Chamber office at 426 S. Water Street.  You can also find tickets available at Willamette Valley Bank, Fall Line, Seven Brides Brewery, Columbia Bank and Bledsoe & Santana Real Estate.

This is a chance to celebrate the volunteerism that makes Silverton so special and encourage folks to find avenues for service.  If you have a passion for service or just like to have a good time at a fun event.  Join us at Judy's Party.
