Portland, OR. The first annual Nightmare on Fremont Street: Night of the Living Donors was a hit with supporters. Housed at the brand new Fremont Theater, and benefiting Portland Story Theater, the festivities were capped off with a spooky tale from co-founders Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard. By night’s end, Portland Story Theater raised valuable funds to help continue the mission of building community through real, true stories. (Photo credit, Kelly Nissl)
Volunteer Daniel LaForce also shared the powerful story about how Portland Story Theater and the art of personal narrative positively impacted his life. Aside from stories, over 100 guests were treated to Tarot and palm readings, delicious desserts and a night of dancing to groovy Halloween-inspired tunes. Photos taken by Kelly Nissl.
