Portland, OR. There’s a plethora of terrific fundraising events that happen each fall in the Portland area. Last September, the Good Samaritan Foundation Fall Ball to support cancer services had guests like Barbara Young, Dr. William Johnson, Dr. Nathalie Johnson and Dr. George Brown, the CEO of Legacy Health. Other fall events included YouthBuilders’ Cornhole Classic, Bridge Meadows Annual IMAGINE Benefit, the LifeWorks NW Iron Chef fundraiser, The AIDS Walk, and “Red For Women” Luncheon. Those are just a few of the fundraisers happening in September!
The Impact NW Garden Party has supporters like Dennis Peck, Marcia Westcott Peck, Liz Burns and Andy Nelson. This year the party is on September 22nd.
The LifeWorks NW Iron Chef fundraiser will be at the Portland Art Museum on September 27th.
