The evening also included a tribute to special guest Steve “Rosy” Rosenberg, a local business leader, past MJCC president, current board member and longtime donor.
With a nod to special guest Steve “Rosy” Rosenberg’s fun-loving Portland-centric approach to life, attendees enjoyed blender bikes (smoothies made with the power of stationary bicycle) and photos with Timbers players and Portland Trail Blazers. The Oregon Jewish Sports Hall of Fame was also unveiled at its new home at the MJCC.
