Chances to Do Good
Neighborhood House will host its annual fundraising event on Saturday, May 13, at the Multnomah Athletic Club, 1849 S.W. Salmon St. in Portland. This year, the nonprofit will be celebrating its merger with Peninsula Children's Learning Center, which provides childcare and education access to area youth.
The "Fete Locale" — celebrating all things local — will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the club. Its theme, in honor of the merger, is "Preschool Playdate." The evening will consist of dining, an auction, childhood games (a nod to the theme) and student performances.
Tickets are now on sale for the fundraiser: $125 for an individual ticket, $1,250 for a table. Neighborhood House will also offer a "golden ticket" raffle for $75 that will allow one lucky entrant to choose from nearly all of the auction items, including trips to Italy and the Oregon coast.
