If you don't know Ecotrust then I'm thinking that you're new to this blog. I love Ecotrust and really admire all of the incredible work that they do. If you have a second please read what they're up to with one of my favorite Ecotrust programs -- the Food and Farms Program. They've also hosted our Portland Fermentation Festival from the get-go and will be hosting this year's third annual PFF! We couldn't do it without them.
Ecotrust is turning 20 years old this year and this organization knows how to work hard as well as play hard which is why they're throwing a huge party and you're invited! Don't worry though, just because even though Ecotrust is only turning 20 this year you can still drink while she sips her her Shirley Temple. Here are the details:
ECOTRUST'S 20th BIRTHDAY BENEFIT BASH FEATURING STORM LARGE Saturday, September 10th Doors open at 6pm All ages 721 NW 9th Ave., Portland MUSIC, LOCAL FOOD & DRINK
Tickets are $125 per person and are available here. Price of admission includes light fare by Artemis Foods and two complimentary tickets for local beer, wine and specialty cocktails. Check out the tasty food & drink menu.
Straight from Ecotrust:
Not your traditional fundraising event, we will be joined by the fabulous Storm Large for a full outdoor concert, and share delicious local bites and drinks throughout the evening. A portion of your ticket price will help us continue to create economic opportunity, social equity and environmental well-being in our region for the next 20 years. Your tax-deductible contribution has enormous impact: for every $100 donated to Ecotrust, we create more than $500 in capital for local economies, communities and nature from Alaska to California. Join us, and help businesses, people and nature thrive.
TICKET GIVEAWAY! And now to something special for all you lovely readers of my blog -- I've got TWO tickets to give away here to ONE lucky person. I'm doing this contest like I do all contests here. I'm writing down a number in my handy dandy notebook and that numbered commenter takes the cake -- well tickets. Keep in mind that if you win you need to email me your name and your guest's name as well as both of your email addresses so that Ecotrust can email you your comp. tickets.
So here's what I want to know. I'm keeping it simple so that I don't stump any chumps. What's your favorite vegetable this summer and how have you been enjoying eating/cooking it? Comment away! Stay tuned for the middle of the week when I announce the lucky winners!
