Date: Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Time: 6 – 8:30PM

Location: Lagunitas Community Room237 NE Broadway Street, Portland, OR 97232 

Event Details

Join Depave for our Second Annual Transformation Fundraising Party, a celebration of our work — what’s already been accomplished and what’s on the horizon!
Connect with friends and make new ones while trading Depave stories and enjoying dinner and drinks (including a taco bar by locally owned Rio Verde, plus churros and cake), silent and live auctions, and remarks about Depave’s transformative work by partners from Ascension Catholic Church, AWS Elemental, and M&M Marketplace. While you’re there, don’t forget to stock up on Depave merchandise and play our Depave game to be entered to win prizes. We encourage you to act on your inspiration and raise your paddle in support of our transformative work. Ticket includes two free drink tokens for beer or wine; additional tokens will be available for purchase. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available for free.

Ticket Prices

Online ticket sales have closed. Tickets available for $40 at the door.
