Where and When to Enjoy Our Local Farmers’ Markets

Foundation Helps “Store to Door” Support Portland Seniors and Adults with Disabilities

Foundation Helps “Store to Door” Support Portland Seniors and Adults with Disabilities

Portland, OR. Foundation is a boutique on Northwest 23rd Avenue that donates its profits, after expenses, to one local charity each quarter. This quarter’s beneficiary is Store to Door and the nonprofit hosted an event to kick off the partnership. Erin Riddle, Marcia Blasen, Elizabeth Lott, and Eumi Wymbs were on hand for the event. (Brendan Ffitch, photo credit)

Store to Door is a Portland non-profit that supports independent living for Portland area seniors and adults with disabilities by providing an affordable, personal, volunteer-based grocery shopping and delivery service. In 2018, Store to Door shopped and delivered more than 11,569 grocery orders to more than 682 clients across the Portland metro area.

“All of our nonprofit partners are very important to us,” said Holly Levow, co-founder and CEO of Foundation. “We couldn’t be more excited to help educate the community about their missions and to empower customers to give directly to these important organizations through something they would be doing anyway – shopping for clothes and accessories they love and feel great in.”

Foundation is located at 919 NW 23rd Avenue, Portland.

Foundation opened in August. The boutique gives 100 percent of profits, after expenses, to a featured non-profit partner. Store to Door will receive 100 percent of Foundation profits made from March 7th through June 5th.

“Store to Door is thrilled to be selected as an Impact Partner!” said Kiersten Ware, Store to Door Executive Director. “Foundation’s commitment to creating a more equitable world and their priority around women’s empowerment and health is very much aligned with our mission. 78% of Store to Door’s clients are women and 86% are low-income. Studies have shown that women over 75 are twice as likely to live in poverty than men. And the poverty rate among seniors of color in Multnomah County is 19% – almost twice the rate for the overall senior population. Store to Door is proud to partner with Foundation in its commitment to address these inequities so that all seniors can be nourished, included, and can live in dignity in the setting of their own choice.”

“When creating Foundation, we knew it was important to not only give with purpose but purchase with purpose,” said Chelsea Armstrong, co-founder of Foundation. To learn more about Foundation’s, upcoming events and its quarterly non-profit partners visit: www.foundationpdx.com.

From Foundation:

Foundation is a Portland-based boutique with a BIG mission: to champion a wide variety of social movements through a combination of fashion, philanthropy and community dialogue. Each quarter the women of Foundation research and carefully select a non-profit organization whose mission they strongly believe in. Foundation kicks off each partnership with an Impact event, an evening of fashion, philanthropy, food and drinks, that it hopes brings awareness to each organization’s mission. The community is invited to learn about Foundation’s non-profit partners, celebrate their great work and contribute to the cause by shopping the season’s best styles. Foundation donates 100 percent of profits and features ethical and socially conscious brands in its store.

From Store to Door:

Since 1989, Store to Door has supported independent living for Portland area seniors and people with disabilities by providing an affordable, personal, volunteer-based grocery shopping and delivery service. When the program began, five volunteers shopped for twenty-five local seniors. Now, 29 years later, Store to Door serves more than 680 clients more than 11,500 deliveries each year. As a volunteer-based organization, Store to Door relies on more than 1500 volunteers annually, who committed more than 17,000 hours of volunteer time last year.

Trail Blazer “3’s for Trees” Program Hits 14,000 Trees Already

Trail Blazer “3’s for Trees” Program Hits 14,000 Trees Already

Portland, OR. The regular NBA season doesn’t end until April 10th, but the Trail Blazers have already hit enough three-point shots to earn over 14,000 trees to plant. The Blazers are teaming again with Daimler Trucks North America and Friends of Trees to plant three trees for every three point field goal made during the 2018-19 regular season. Last season, the “3’s for Trees”  program helped plant over 15,000 trees. (Photo credit, Justin Tucker)

Christa Stout, Vice President of Social Responsibility for the Portland Trail Blazers explains, “Planting over 15,000 trees is an incredible milestone, and it has been amazing to see the transformation of the Sandy River Delta over the past four seasons. We are proud to partner with these two amazing organizations that continue to make a positive impact on our environment.”

Scott Fogarty, Executive Director of Friends of Trees; Eileen Frack, Daimler’s General Manager of Human Resources; and Christa Stout celebrated the program at the Blazers 2018-19 season opener.

Trail Blazers and Daimler volunteers helped plant the “3’s for Trees” saplings last spring.

Daimler Trucks North America helped Friends of Trees plant the 15,000th tree in the Sandy River Delta. Thanks to the reforestation of this area, native wildlife has returned to the Delta to live and breed for the first time in many years. After the regular season, volunteers will be out planting again. You can join a Friends of Trees planting event to help plant all these trees. Learn more at friendsoftrees.org.

From Friends of Trees:

Friends of Trees was founded in 1989 by a community member who loved trees and started planting them in Portland neighborhoods. Today, Friends of Trees is a nationally recognized, regional leader in improving the urban tree canopy and restoring sensitive natural areas—through programs delivered by thousands of volunteers. Friends of Trees greens our region while growing community.

Since our founding Friends of Trees has planted 750,000+ trees and native plants with thousands and thousands and thousands of volunteers in 120+ neighborhoods in six counties across two states.

Whether it’s a forest created from our canopy of urban trees or the forest to come from our restoration plantings in sensitive natural areas, there is no doubt that the trees planted by Friends of Trees play a vital role our region’s livability. Given rising temperatures and all that we know about the cooling and cleansing effects of trees, it’s easy to see how our work improves our natural environment. But what’s really something else is the people-power: the trees we plant are actually planted by 6,000+ volunteers every planting season.

 

 

Portland’s Lara Tennant Wins USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship

Portland’s Lara Tennant Wins USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship

Vero Beach, Fla. Portland’s Lara Tennant arrived at Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club having won just one match in a USGA amateur championship in eight starts, but on October 11th she captured the USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship in convincing fashion. “I would say except for last year, all of the other USGA championships I played in, I probably prepared two weeks before,” explained Tennant. “With five kids I was never prepared like I am now. Since I turned 50 I was able to have the time to prepare, and I would say I have a new passion for golf.”

Making the experience even more exciting, Lara’s 78-year-old father, George Mack, served as her caddie. He was enjoying the experience even before the final round. “How can you beat this?” said Mack, “Regardless of what happens tomorrow, it doesn’t matter because we’ve had a great time.”

Tennant never trailed on Thursday, defeating Sue Wooster, 56, of Australia, 3 and 2, in the 18-hole championship match, USGA official Scott Lipsky, reported.

Tennant was able to build a cushion on the back nine on Thursday by taking advantage of some late miscues by Wooster. 

As the runner-up, Wooster receives an exemption into the 2019 U.S. Senior Women’s Open, as well as a three-year exemption into the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur and exemptions into the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur and U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur.

February 15, 2019: Love is in the air during the month of February, but it’s good to avoid having your wedding on a major holiday like Valentine’s Day (both your single and taken friends will thank you later). However, this year, February 15th is the Friday right after Valentine’s Day, which makes it the most perfect and romantic winter wedding date!

May 19, 2019: Want a royal wedding? May 19th was the day Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married and 19 is also a lucky number!

Labor Day Weekend: If you’re planning on having a lit wedding night where you’ll be dancing all night long, having that extra day to recover is key. Labor Day weekend in 2019 is ideal because if you’re having out of towners at your wedding, it’s the perfect chance for them to travel without having to take extra time off from work to recuperate.

A fall wedding makes for cooler temperatures and less bugs if you’re outside. With a plethora of pumpkins, there are some festive and unique wedding styles to embrace.

October was the month U.S. Army veteran Justin Lansford married his longtime girlfriend, Carol Balmes. Lansford’s service dog, a golden retriever named Gabe, served as best man.

Seasonal fall flower can have bold combinations of the jewel-toned colors like deep purple, rust, scarlet, and gold.

Eugene Shines as Wilson Claims Elusive USGA Title

Eugene Shines as Wilson Claims Elusive USGA Title

Eugene, OR.  55-year-old Jeff Wilson from Fairfield, CA., won the 64th U.S. Senior Amateur Championship with a 2-and-1 victory over defending champion Sean Knapp of Oakmont, PA. The August tournament was the fifth USGA championship hosted by Eugene Country Club. (The United States Golf Association (USGA) is a nonprofit organization that serves as the governing body of golf in the United States and Mexico.) Wilson had some thoughts about his performance. “I just tried to get myself to settle down and not think ahead and just keep hitting shots, and I played a pretty good back nine. I was 4 under for the last eight holes or something like that.”

For Wilson, this was the culmination of a journey that began in the late 1970s with the U.S. Junior Amateur and progressed to four U.S. Open appearances, including 2000 at Pebble Beach, where he earned low-amateur honors. He is the only golfer in USGA history to earn medalist honors in the U.S. Amateur, the U.S. Mid-Amateur and the U.S. Senior Amateur, and earlier this summer he was the low amateur in the U.S. Senior Open, joining two-time USGA champion Marvin “Vinny” Giles III as the only competitors to earn that distinction in a U.S. Open and U.S. Senior Open.

Wilson played the equivalent of 4-under-par golf – with the usual match-play concessions – over the final eight holes to beat Knapp, who was vying to become the first repeat champion since William C. Campbell in 1979-1980.

“Anybody that’s played amateur golf at a high level has known Jeff Wilson. He’s a superstar,” said Sean Knapp. “You did not see a senior golfer out there. You saw one of the best amateur golfers in the country.”

Wilson had come close to winning USGA titles before, reaching the semifinals of the U.S. Mid-Amateur in consecutive years (2001-2002) and the quarterfinals of that championship on three other occasions. But when he turned 55 in June, he could compete in the U.S. Senior Amateur and he joined Knapp as players to have won the title in their first year of eligibility.

At 55 years, 2 months and 16 days, he is the third youngest to win the U.S. Senior Amateur behind Stan Lee and his brother, Louis Lee.

“I think Sean said it best [at the prize ceremony], it’s really hard to win one of these things,” said Wilson, the owner of a car dealership. “First you’ve got to get over yourself and then you have to beat the guy playing with you. And it’s difficult.

“I always thought I was good enough to be a USGA champion, but I never work put the work in. And that shows up when the matches are on the line. This year, I put the work in.”

Enjoying as much as a 30-yard advantage off the tee, Wilson took advantage of that power on the two second-nine par 5s at Eugene, nearly reaching both in two. He won the 13th to go 1 up and after winning the par-4 14th when Knapp three-putted, Wilson’s second shot from the right rough on the 522-yard 16th hole stopped 5 yards short of the green. With Knapp already inside 4 feet following a perfect wedge approach, Wilson eschewed his wedge and putted the ball from the fairway. It came up 9 feet short, but he managed to convert the birdie putt to maintain his 2-up lead.

On the 17th hole, both players hit their wedge approaches within 12 feet of the flagstick. When Knapp’s birdie attempt drifted past the hole, all Wilson had to do was cozy his birdie putt to within concession range, which he did to take the title.”

From USGA:

  • Runner-up Sean Knapp received a silver medal and exemptions into the 2019 U.S. Senior Open, the 2019 U.S. Amateur and next month’s U.S. Mid-Amateur.
  • Before Thursday’s final, John Richardson had been the last medalist to win the U.S. Senior Amateur, doing so at Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, Pa. His son,Kemp Richardson, later won titles in 2001 and 2003, making them the only father-son tandem to win a USGA championship.
  • Knapp is the fifth player in U.S. Senior Amateur history to win a U.S. Senior Amateur title and lose in the championship match the following year. The other four are J. Clark Espie (1956-1957), Lewis Oehmig (1976-1977), Ed Updegraff (1981-1982) and Mark Bemowski (2004-2005)
  • Jeff Wilson’s 84-year-old father, Jack, took a break from a fly-fishing trip on the nearby McKenzie River in Oregon to watch his son play the final match.
  • Wilson’s caddie this week was childhood friend Bobby Periera. In a bit of irony, Pereira was wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers cap, which happens to be the team Knapp roots for. Knapp resides in the Pittsburgh suburbs.

Oregon Film Office Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Oregon Film Office Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Portland, OR. Oregon Film turns 50 this year. The office was founded in 1968 by Governor Tom McCall as a way to meet the needs of the Hollywood crew filming Paint Your Wagon which was shooting in Baker County. Hundreds of projects have been filmed in Oregon over the past 50 years including Wild, Cheryl Strayed’s 2014 biographical adventure staring Reese Witherspoon.

TNT’s Leverage Season 4 filmed on Mount Hood.

Forest Park was one location for NBC Universal’s GRIMM where David Giuntoli, who played Nick Burckhardt, and Russell Hornsby, who played Hank Green, worked a crime scene. (Photo credit, Scott Green)

In the 50th anniversary year, the newly minted #OregonMade “umbrella” initiative strives to raise awareness, pride and creative connections between production of all types, as well as businesses, crew, the education sector, events and related services.  #OregonMade promotes all sizes of projects, even those that do not necessarily qualify for financial incentive programs.

As part of the initiative, Oregon Film created the non-profit, Oregon Made Creative Foundation. This unique project, done in partnership with the Charitable Partnership Fund to create a stand-alone (501[c][3]), offers several limited edition #OregonMade products for sale.  All of the net proceeds will be used for grants for low or micro-budget creative content, initiated or made by Oregonians.

Oregon’s collective production industries now generate more than $200M in tracked economic activity per year. That’s more than 20x the tracked spending for this industry in Oregon in 2005.

According an economic impact study by PSU’s Northwest Economic Research Center this industry now provides Oregon with more than 3000 jobs and $150M in annual payroll.

The crew working on the TV show Grimm, which wrapped in 2017 after six seasons, took time to record testimonials about working in the local film industry.

Here’s a video created in 2009 for the Oregon Film Office to help bring major motion picture and television series productions to the state.

Oregon Film is tasked with the following:

  • Market Oregon as a filming location
  • Recruit out-of-state productions
  • Liaise with producers & production groups
  • Help build the indigenous film, video, and multimedia industry
  • Sponsor industry & community events
  • Work with partners to build the creative community
  • Advise other entities on creating filming regulations
  • Strengthen relationships with local communities
  • Provide consumer protection information
  • Serve as a spokesperson for the industry

About Oregon Film:

Oregon Film is a semi-independent, state agency with a mission to promote, support and advance the film, video, interactive, animation and creative content industries within the state, by fostering and creating connections between production, businesses and the public, and strengthening this industry’s profile and reputation locally, nationally and internationally.  It operates with a staff of four people who work to promote and strengthen the statewide industry, it answers to a board, which is overseen by Governor Kate Brown. The Board of Directors includes: Juliana Lukasik (Chair), Jason A. Atkinson, Angela Jackson, Paul Loving and Steve Oster. Oregon Film acts as the official voice of the production industry in Oregon. 

As Oregon Film moves into another busy production season and a new fiscal year, administrators are busy managing the state’s incentive programs – OPIF, Greenlight Oregon, iOPIF and the newly created rOPIF – and a large and growing, interactive database of over 6000 filming locations, as well as curating and managing  the many resources that are needed to shoot a film, TV series, or commercial project, or start an interactive, animation or branded content company here.  

We aim to try and create space for connections between the creative and business communities in Oregon – that’s where all of the exciting #OregonMade work lies!  This means we support and attend more than a hundred industry and community events in any given year; festivals, screenings, film shadow programs, educational outreach and business relationships/partners. We regularly work with state agencies such as; Travel Oregon, Travel Portland, Oregon State Parks, Oregon Arts Commission and Business Oregon; statewide non-profits like the OMPAThe Hollywood Theatre and The Historic Theaters Initiative; and educational programs at institutions such as PSU, SOU, PCC, CCC, U of O and even high schools across the state. (Take a look at some highlights of a High School Job Shadow program we did last summer.)

Did you know that last year we tracked more than 40 film-related festivals in Oregon? We were lucky enough to attend more than half of these (with a goal to reach them all!). All told, we traveled nearly 10,000 miles last year alone in order to make creative connections in Lakeview, Ashland, Burns, Pendleton, Estacada, Bend, Klamath Falls, Eugene and La Grande – all celebrating #OregonMade projects and locations.

Most recently, we we able to partner with Portland City Parks, Friends of Trees, Friends of Pier Park, Comcast/NBC, City of Portland, Gov. Brown and Comm. Nick Fish to plant a grove of trees in Pier Park ,North Portland, to commemorate six years of the NBC series “Grimm” calling Portland it’s photogenic home.

The icing on the cake this past year was the double-whammy of a six month exhibit at PDX Airport with costumes and props from some of Oregon’s most iconic shows – “Wild,” “The Goonies,” “The Librarians,” “Portlandia,” “Animal House” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” – an exhibit seen by over one million people – and last summer’s statewide tour of Buster Keaton’s #OregonMade 1926 silent classic ,”The General”, with a brand new, live score by Oregon Composer Mark Orton. The pinnacle performance took place in an outdoor amphitheater in front of more than 1500 people in Cottage Grove, about 100 yards from the very tracks where it was shot more than 90 years ago. These special projects represent the kind of creative connection we take pride in making with our collective #OregonMade brand.

If you think there might be ways we can creatively connect with you – please get in touch and let us know.  We thank you for partnering to help promote all things #OregonMade.
