Portland, March 22nd. Friends and nonprofit leaders raised a glass in at Paragon Restaurant to toast the announcement of a special award to be given by PortlandSocietyPage.com. The “Bright Spot Award” is the heartfelt recognition of an event which captures the imagination of our PortlandSocietyPage.com readers. On hand for the announcement were Elizabeth English, Henry Hillman, Nancy Frisch, KINK’s Sheila Hamilton, Jill Schnitzer Edelson, and PortlandSocietyPage.com Editor, Elisa Klein.
The Bright Spot Award is an on-line contest where our readers will select their favorite story by giving a “Thumbs Up” for articles. Each story we post has as a “like” button at the bottom. Just press that button and you’ve voted. There’s an ongoing tally which can be seen on the right-hand side of the page. All stories will be considered, even if you dig one up in our extensive archives.
The evening included a drawing for two outstanding cultural events. Special thanks to the Oregon Symphony and the Portland Opera for their generous donation.
Prizes for the winner of the “Bright Spot Award” will include:
- A non-event feature story on PortlandSocietyPage.com. The winning charity will have the opportunity to highlight any aspect of its operation: special projects, an outstanding volunteer or board member. The choice is theirs.
- The winner will also receive a free banner ad for an upcoming special event.
- Additionally, there is a cash prize! Each vote cast for the winning article on PortlandSocietyPage.com will be equal to 50-cents cash, up to a total of a $1,000 donation to the winning nonprofit.
- The winner will be announced at the PortlandSocietyPage.com anniversary party.
