Sweet Life Patisserie: All Month (October)

You can make a lasting difference in people’s lives, and it’s as easy as pie (or cookies in this case).  Sweet Life Patisserie will be selling Haunted House cookies to support the “I ShelterCare about Homelessness” campaign. Treat yourself or buy a tray to “cookie bomb” your friends or family.

Tailgate Thriller: Oct. 10, 2015

Laugh, dance and play with ShelterCare and Thrill the World Eugene before the University of Oregon football game against Washington State University. You’re invited to stop by the Boy Scouts of America tailgate area (2525 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Eugene) across from Autzen Stadium for games, fun and zombies dancing to Michael Jackson’s hit song, “Thriller.” 

Zombies will roam the parking lots with donation jars in hand in an effort to raise funds to support “I ShelterCare about Homelessness.”

Make sure to find our on-site ShelterCare table, which will feature a variety of games and prizes, including a chance to win a Duck-themed gift basket.

The Bier Stein: Oct. 21, 2015

Starting at 5:00 p.m., swing by the Bier Stein and have a pint from the designated keg for ShelterCare. Proceeds will be donated to ShelterCare. This wonderful promotion continues until the keg is emptied. Get into the Halloween spirit with a performance by Thrill the World Eugene dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Thrill the World Eugene: Oct. 24, 2015

Thrill the World is an annual global attempt to break the world record for the largest simultaneous “Thriller Dance” while raising money for charity.  In 2012, Eugene joined “Thrill the World” for the first time.  We are “thrilled” that Thrill the World Eugene's designated charitable organization is ShelterCare! Since partnering with ShelterCare, dancers have raised nearly $10,000 to support our programs.

Join us Oct. 25, 2015, at 3:00 p.m., at Washington Jefferson Park.
