This is a fundraiser for the future of Harper’s Playground and our community. Proceeds from the evening will go directly towards our mission to bring 4 more Harper’s Playgrounds to Portland, Oregon by 2020. Throughout that process, we will be working with other cities across the country to help them duplicate our model of grassroots-inspired, inclusive playground projects.

Here is the scoop for the evening:

“The Art of Play” will kick off at 6 PM on Thursday, April 24 at Refuge PDX (116 SE Yamhill St.) and the fun will continue until 10 PM.
Tickets are $42 – because we love the number, and the event is on 4/24/14, so 4’s and 2’s just made sense.

Your paid entry includes 2 drink tickets, a healthy serving of hors d’oeuvres, and live entertainment by DJ Anna Langley and a surprise live band, to be announced before the event.

The art auction will feature pieces by Jim Miller, Shawn Records, David Trowbridge, Yaac Feuer, Carli Davidson, Carrie Goolsby, Satsuma Press, Mark Gonzales, Sam Roloff, Ivan McLean and many others.

Culinary treats will be provided by Olympic Provisions, Masu Sushi, and more.
Libations will include Gilgamesh Brewing beer, Cider Rot hard cider, Zanzibar red wine, Owen Row white wine, and cocktails from New Deal Distillery.
Our program for the evening will be hosted by none other than the incredible AC Dickson.

Following our silent auction, Mr. Dickson will lead a spirited live auction, which will lead into a special appeal, and then even more spirited entertainment.

We promise you an art-filled, playful evening to be remembered and cannot wait to see you there!
