August Dinner & Award

Mariah Maines and Jess Hirsch of The Portland Healing Project (pictured left, above) were recipients of the $500 artist grant for August, 2009.

We hosted approximately 70 diners at this month's dinner, doubling our attendance from last month.

We'd like to extend a hearty thanks to Gallery Homeland for hosting us a second month, as well as to the many volunteers and donors who helped us peel beets, chop tomatoes, schlep tables and chairs and beautify the space.

We hope to see everyone next month as we plan to host Stock as part of the Econvergence conference.

Here are some more pictures from August's event:
