About 450 people attend the benefit. Event sponsors included: Columbia Helicopters, Inc. Portland Area Taco Bell Owners Association, and The Standard. The Board President of Oregon Partnership is Dan McMillan from The Standard.

Those in attendance got a sneak peak at the name Oregon Partnership will transition to in about a month: “Lines for Life” 

It’s a name more evocative of the live -saving work of the nonprofit:
A first line of prevention for children in schools and communities
A direct line of help for parents
A confidential line for individuals or families seeking help for addiction or mental illness
A Lifeline to those in the grips of depression and suicidal thoughts
A confidential line for teens suffering quietly from bullying and personal torment
An anonymous line for the brave men and women who have served our country and now it’s time for us to be there for them
