Fundraising can cost more than money – Just ask Dave Bakke!

Chambers Construction’s team goal was set at $30,000.

Our company President, Dave Bakke recently did a pretty incredible thing! In addition to helping run our great company, Dave is also President of the Board for Oregon Cancer Foundation (OCF). So, this year for the Neighbors helping Neighbors campaign, Dave promised to shave his head if the Chambers Construction team met their fundraising goal.

As the president of the OCF board, Dave helps lead the foundation by setting and meeting goals. He has a strong connection with the community and a deep passion for the cause.

The Neighbors helping Neighbors campaign usually ends with a breakfast celebration. However, this year it became a virtual event due to COVID-19. That didn’t stop the excitement or the festivities. On May 6, supporters grabbed their coffee and logged in online to find out how much the enthusiasts had raised for OCF.

Chambers Construction’s team goal was set at $30,000. They didn’t just meet their goal, they surpassed it by $6,000. And Dave lived up to his end of the deal – he shaved his curly locks right off and was happy to do so. We think it looks great!

The money raised for OCF goes to help the needs of those impacted by cancer in our community. The funds go directly to community members and provide things such as help with rent, utilities, transportation, food, and many other needs.
