Up Front and Center Stage: Introducing our inaugural Champions for Childhood Gala Hosts!

We are delighted to welcome Natali Marmion, local television anchor and news host, as the emcee for Children’s Center’s Inaugural Champions for Childhood Gala!

With 25 years in the Portland community, Natali has touched the lives of many people. You invited her into your home as your local news anchor for KATU and host of Eye on the Northwest for KOIN-TV.

She now spends her time helping people find ‘Home’ as a Real Estate Broker for RE/MAX Equity Group.

Natali actively stays involved with groups that serve children, families, animals, and medical advancements, and was Knighted a Royal Rosarian for her service in our community.

Many of our attendees will recognize premier auctioneer Johnna Wells who has been engaging guests at Children’s Center’s Gala Auctions since the first one in 2012.

Acting as both host and auctioneer at our last two Virtual Galas, Johnna is guided by almost 20 years as a professional fundraising auctioneer, mission ambassador and nonprofit consultant, and channels a wealth of knowledge into every partnership.

Children’s Center is honored to once again partner with Johnna as she helps us create a sense of community as we celebrate everything that is great about being a child!

Gala sponsorships, table sponsorships and auction items are still needed. Please see our Gala website for more information.
