    It has been a very successful fundraising year lead by GOSGMP Board Member Kristin Wood!  We have to date raised $2900.00 through our Stay & Play Packages and we are now on our final package, the beautiful Oregon Coast!  Please help us raise as much as we can on this final package by sharing the Stay & Play link on your Facebook page and other social media avenues.  With these additional funds we are able to give out more scholarship money to our members for the 2014 NEC here in Portland!

    Thank you to our Fundraising Committee who has helped secure items for these packages and thank you to all SGMP members that have promoted and purchased raffle tickets!
