Portland, April 11th, 2015. Human Solutions’ auction and gala raised more than $80,000 for the agency’s programs and services for low-income and homeless individuals and families. About 230 guests attended the event at the Melody Ballroom in Portland. This year’s kite-filled theme was “Soar With Us.” The event featured silent and live auctions, a buffet dinner, and dancing to live East Coast jazz, swing and pop by Portland’s Shanghai Woolies. Guests had a great time bidding for auction items via their smart phones.
