During the 2013 gala, over 700 people joined together to drink, dine, and mingle with Portland’s top designers, all to raise awareness and money to help support the programs offered by the non-profit organization, Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus. A silent auction and live auction started the evening, followed by an award ceremony recognizing the most outstanding dining rooms. This event is the largest of the design community in the Portland metropolitan area and Southwest Washington. Tickets sold out fast so be sure to get your 2014 tickets as soon as they are available, to the hottest design event of the year!
Guests were greeted on the red carpet. Photos and celebration ensued. The cocktail hour offered unique entertainment fit for the creative environment and a chance to view the amazing dining rooms and bid on some great silent auction packages. Dinner was served and a live auction followed. For the 2014 event, think about upgrading your table as (during an exciting opening-of-the-evening’s-festivities-live auction) to enjoy a dinner fit for a queen or king. Then sit back and enjoy dessert and learn who received the top awards for Serving Up Style! It’s a fantastic night you won’t soon forget.
Please take a moment to watch this touching video as our Patient of the Year, Chris Eastman, shares his struggles and triumphs battling the devastating disease of lupus. Patients like Chris are the reason Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus holds this gala each year, raising funds to help he and others who are suffering with lupus.
