Weird Portland United (WPU) is gathering a sampling of the city’s weirdest for one memorable evening that is sure to go down in Rose City history.
The Weird Portland Gala is a celebration of everything that makes Portland, Portland and will include live music by Sweet N’ Juicy, a showcase of local artists, a photobooth, appetizers and full bar, games, door prizes and plenty of weird surprises throughout the night. Plus appearances from such Portland luminaries as Moshow the Cat Rapper, Rojo the Llama, The Unipiper and more.
Don’t forget to bring your wallets, because what is a fundraiser without a live auction? The Weird Portland auction includes uniquely Portland shopping experiences and original art, gifts, experiences and memorabilia found nowhere else. Money raised at the Gala will go towards meeting the financial goals of WPU’s newest initiative, the Weird Portland Grant Program, launching in 2020 to award deserving applicants a financial boost to their own weird dreams for the city.
The gala theme is ‘The Spirit of Portland’ and costumes are strongly encouraged, though not required.
