Portland, October 25th, 2014. Celebrating a vibrant Jewish community – in style, hundreds gather at Pure Space in the Pearl to dance the night away. It was the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland’s Gala event: “A Roaring Good Time.” The gala was a 1920s themed party complete with flappers, fantasy, and philanthropy. Native Portlander and Walt Disney Executive Creative Director, Dan Fields truly knows how to “make magic happen” – he designed evening for our community. As the balloons dropped and the champagne flowed, guests helped raise funds to support those in need here in Portland and around the globe. At the close of the evening, the Jewish Federation’s annual campaign rose to $2M, half its goal only in only 41 days!
