Pearl Buck Center Hosts Fundraiser

Pearl Buck Center fundraiserEUGENE, Ore. — Dozens of people gathered at Lane Community College Friday morning for the fifth annual Pearl Buck Benefit Breakfast.

The theme this year was You’ve Got a Friend.

The breakfast is an opportunity to spread the word about the Pearl Buck Center and the free services it offers to those with developmental disabilities. For parents of children who utilize the programs, the center is a lifeline.

“Cara can’t go out into the world, but with Pearl Buck’s help she’s got lots of friends to help her in her world, and I think that’s probably the biggest thing to me,” said Cinda Gangle, Pearl Buck Center board member and parent.

The Pearl Buck Center serves about 600 clients.
