Fiesta of Hope

Agh, what am I doing writing a blog when I should be selling tickets, putting the final touches on our awesome silent auction items, printing bid sheets, verifying the color of table clothes and giving out volunteer jobs?!

Well, I wanted to take a quick minute to share with you what we have in store (if you act fast you can still snag tickets-$50 call 503.992.0078).

A Fiesta of Hope is in its 5th year. It is held annually in March in honor of International Women's Day. We celebrate our program participants and women everywhere with lots of fun and dancing, food and wine! Bon Appetit is our caterer and they put out a spread fit for a queen. Featuring Chef Micah Cavolo and his staff the menu focuses on seasonal and local food! Elk Cove Wine has once again generously donated their award winning Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris for all to imbibe. Captured By Porches, a family brewery in St. Helens, has donated 2 kegs-one to drink and one to raffle!

We'll also be showing a short video featuring two project participants where you'll learn more about their amazing stories of survival, forgiveness and success!

We'll end the evening with a DANCE PARTY -- grooving to the salsa beats of La Descarga Cubana!

Hope you can join us in honoring women everywhere especially those in our little corner of the world.
