They are featured in The Bend Magazine as this year’s 7 Most Beautiful Women: Inside and Out. Soon, everyone will have a chance to meet them and learn more about the charity or non-profit they each represent.

The 4th annual event will be held Thursday at the Ortiz Center (402 Harbor Drive) beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Those who choose to come will be doing much more than just attending a dinner party. They will be supporting seven different stories of hard work, passion and dedication, found in the women who have looked beyond themselves to the needs and concerns of their community and the world around them.

This event will also bring attention some amazing causes in our region, as each woman is working to raise support for her charity, and ultimately to be crowned The Bend’s Most Beautiful Woman: Inside and Out 2018.

Their goal — which is exceedeed every year — is to each raise at least $2,500, with the award going to the woman who raises the most money for the cause most dear to her.

Tickets are $75 and available online at, with a limited number available until Sept. 20.

Tickets will not be sold at the door.

The evening will include a plated dinner, dessert, cash bar, and presentations from each woman and their cause. Donations will be accepted throughout the night.

The dress code is formal wear.
