2020 First Interstate Bank Bend Fall Festival is proud to support The Center Foundation

2200 NE Neff Road
Bend, OR 97701

The Center Foundation provides over $500,000 in medical services annually to area high schools, and serves more than 5,000 student athletes at over 1400 sporting events each year. We provide these services at no cost to parents or students. Our work is about more than athletics…it is about keeping kids active, engaged, and safe regardless of their ability to pay. To accomplish this, we place certified athletic trainers in Bend, La Pine, Sisters, Prineville, Madras and Culver high schools, providing sports medicine services to young athletes. Our athletic trainers are health care professionals, specializing in prevention, emergency care, rehabilitation, and management of sports related injuries and concussions. They are first responders – your child’s first line of defense.

Every year, Lay It Out Events donates a portion of proceeds from Fall Fest to a local nonprofit. The Center Foundation was honored to be chosen for this year’s Fall Fest donation of $3,000 when, unexpectedly, a second donor stepped in. The anonymous giver added $22,000 to bring the total donation to more than eight times its original amount.
