Portland, May 6th, 2015. Central City Concern’s annual “We are Family” event raised approximately $70,000 to help local women and children. The funds are earmarked for Central City Concern’s Letty Owings Center and Family Housing programs. Whisper and her mother (and successful client of Central City Concern programs) Ginger Mondrut were a hit at the benefit. The featured speaker was Portland’s “Bridge Lady” Sharon Wood-Wortman who spoke about bridges as a metaphor for life’s transitions. (Photo credit, Andie Petkus)
