Whiskey & Water

Posted by Renee Magyar on June 5, 2013

We're working together for the West.


We had a great time at Sustainable Northwest?s annual summer fundraiser!

The old saying goes, ?Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting.? At this event there was no fighting, only celebrating some of our stellar accomplishments and honoring our founder and President Martin Goebel. Martin stepped down this summer and we thank you for being there to raise a glass with us in a toast to all that he has accomplished. We also had a great time introducing John Audley, our new Executive Director, and sharing our vision for the future of Sustainable Northwest and the regions and communities we serve.

When: August 8, 2013 - 6-8pm

Where: At the Sustainable Northwest Wood warehouse, near OMSI, 225-A SE Division Place, Portland, OR 97202

Tickets: $30. Advanced ticket sales have closed. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door. Cash or check is preferable.

This is a fun and casual summer fundraising event. We will have a whiskey tasting, live music, a silent auction, and a barbecue dinner (with plenty of vegetarian options.) All for only $30!
