We are shocked and saddened by the shooting that occurred outside our building on Friday, January 14th. Our deepest sympathies are with the victims of this horrific event. We are taking immediate steps to focus our energies on supporting our staff, volunteers, patrons, members, and community-at-large, many of whom have expressed concern and grief. We are deeply affected by this event and expect to be for months to come. We are dedicated to marshaling the resources needed by the community.

At this time, we do not have any specific information, including the names of the victims. We are relying on the police investigation to assist us going forward. We can confirm that all WOW Hall staff and volunteers are safe and accounted for, and about sixty attendees were inside the WOW Hall when the shooting happened outside.

For months the Community Center for the Performing Arts has been actively examining how to fulfill its mission and serve the broader community more deeply. On the heels of this heart-rending event, we have been deeply touched by the outpouring of empathy and support from that very same community.

We ask our neighbors and supporters to help us with the next step and join us in finding solutions. We need your voice and are committed to providing a variety of ways for the community to come together, make connections, and plan for a future where this never happens again. 

Thank You

CCPA Board of Directors


[Posted January 14th, 2022]

You may have heard that there was a shooting outside the WOW Hall tonight at the "Lil Bean + Zay Bang"* concert.

There is not much information currently available however we heard gunshots in the back parking lot.  The motives are not yet known. We do know that some people were injured, but we do not know the extent of the injuries, and we do not want to speculate.

We at the WOW Hall want to thank all first responders who came so quickly to ensure everyone’s safety and administer first aid.

We believe all staff and volunteers are safe and accounted for.

This is unprecedented at the WOW Hall. The police are investigating. If we receive additional information, we will try to make it available.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact the
Eugene Police Department at
541-682-5162.

Thank you for continuing to support the WOW Hall in these very challenging times.

All classes held at the WOW Hall are canceled until further notice.

Sincerely,

Deb Maher, Interim Executive Director
Jaci Guerena, Board Chair
