Table of Friends in Hood River May 1

Get ready to know your onions at The Next Door’s annual benefit dinner and dessert auction, Table of Friends. This sockdollager features great food from Chef Mark Whitehead and live music. For those so inclined…get your Roaring Twenties beaded dress out of the attic and start practicing the Charleston. But if you’re not inclined, Ish Kabibble! You don’t have to be togged to the bricks to have fun with us.Four Dancers Doing the Charleston

The thrill of the night is our live dessert auction, where friends hit on all sixes, bidding together to win ducky desserts made by incredible local bakers – all in support of vulnerable children in our community!
