4th of July, 2016 Chili Cook Off - Port of Brookings Harbor

On the 4th of July, 2016, at the Port of Brookings Harbor, Oasis Shelter Home celebrated the final annual Chili Cook Off. Members of the public came down to the tent to support our fundraiser, many of whom have been continual and loyal supporters of our Shelter Home and our cause, to empower victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and resulting homelessness, through advocacy and shelter in order to achieve a life free from abuse. Of the community businesses that donated the prizes for the chili cook off, some of them came down to support us too! Members of our Board of Directors were there too as well as three staff members and volunteers, youth and adult were there to facilitate and assist! Thank you to all members of our community, and neighboring communities, that have come out to support Oasis Shelter Home Chili Cook off this year and those of the past years too, we remain thankful and appreciative to you all! Please stay tuned for upcoming fundraisers as we move deeper into this year! -Oasis Love- Setting up for the cook off. James Vermaak, Jolene Vermaak, Lea Sevey, Olivia Davis.Thanks to all!
