Sunset Steam Train Excursion benefits local non-profits

Sunset Steam Train Excursion benefits local non-profits

Recipients of monies raised by the Sunset Steam Train Excursion: Doug Tharp, Treasurer, International Police Museum; Ed Wortman, Executive Director, International Police Museum; Rich Gitschlag, President, Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad; Christine Bacon, President, Garibaldi Museum; and Valerie Schumann, Secretary, Garibaldi Cultural Heritage Initiative.

A video production this summer gave the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad the opportunity to give back to the community.

The Sunset Steam Train Excursion, back in July, took patrons along the Tillamook Coast from Garibaldi to Rockaway Beach, while a drone filmed from above. Ticket sales were donated to three Garibaldi non-profits.

The Garibaldi Museum, Garibaldi Cultural Heritage Initiative, and the Rockaway Beach International Police all received just over $700 in August as a result of the fundraiser.
