This year marks the 41st Sagebrush Rendezvous. For the past 41st year this charitable event has showcased western and wildlife art with wine and cheese tasting raising over $400,000 to date. The art show proceeds were originally used to assist with the unfunded costs of local schools and other charitable causes. Since then, the program has greatly benefited the following groups:
- Klamath-Lake CARES
- Klamath Falls Special Olympics
- Junior Achievement
- Friends of the Children
- SLMC Cancer Treatment Center
- SLMC Foundation
In 2009 the Exchange Club of Klamath Falls assumed the formal event responsibilities and is continuing many of the same excellent venue that Wayne Snoozy directed for 30 years. The club continued to expand the original theme to also include many different genres of art, inviting more regional artists to personally show their works, providing beer, wine, cheese, and bread tasting on both days and a quick draw contest on Saturday. 2018, in partnership with the Exchange Club of Klamath Falls, Sky Lakes Foundation is has formally assumed responsibilities for planning and conducting this tremendous fundraiser and plans on continuing this event for years to come.
