Portland, December 3rd. The Wonder Ballroom on NE Russell was all aglitter with young lovelies for the 8th Annual Levé Charity Ball. Levé board member Anne Lawrence, Levé president Kiernan Doherty and Levé vice president Megan Dobson were thrilled to have record-breaking attendance with 650 guests. Levé is a nonprofit formed by young professional women; each year members organize a special event and select a worthy beneficiary for their fundraising. This year’s beneficiary, the Loaves & Fishes Center, is slated to receive over $45,000 from Levé.
The Levé Charity Ball featured a silent auction, live music with Manimalhouse and DJ Yaz, local bites and free champagne.
