Proud Sponsor of the Boys & Girls Club of Bend’s Virtual House Party Event

Who’s ready to party? BendTel is excited to flex our Mix Master skills as an event sponsor for the Boys & Girls Club of Bend’s virtual House Party event.

On Saturday, May 8th, community members, business leaders, and parents will come together virtually at the first ever House Party, presented by Qorvo. The event will raise much needed funds to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend’s youth development programs this coming summer. The signature event will be live streamed at bgcbend.org/house-party.

Guests are encouraged to break out their hypercolor t-shirts, acid-washed jeans, scrunchies and crimping irons! House Party promises to be a fun-filled evening of live auction items, food, drinks and a celebration of all things 90s! Guests will travel back in time through our website to celebrate and support the amazing youth that count on Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend each day. And even though we can’t meet in person, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend will provide everything you need to party virtually together! Event highlights include:

  • One-of-a-kind online auction items
  • Slammin’ raffle prizes from Hydro Flask
  • Gift bags full of fly, 90s themed items
  • Throwback photo contest
  • Trivia contests with rad prizes
  • And much more!
