Our favorite event was back live and in person last Friday as we celebrated the fifteenth annual Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker Industry Holiday Open House at the Tiffany Center in Southwest Portland.
The goal of our Holiday Open house is three-fold; To thank our industry professional partners for their collaboration and partnership over the past year, to raise money for Portland area nonprofits, and to kick off the holiday season with a fun, festive atmosphere filled with games, food, a silent auction, and surprise guest appearances.
This year we are pleased to announce a record-breaking fundraising effort for our selected non-profits; Children’s Healing Art Project: CHAP, an organization providing innovative and inclusive healing arts programs free of charge to children, teens, and families affected by pediatric illness, disability, and special needs and One Tail at a Time PDX, dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals by providing humane, individualized care and a chance to know the comforts of a loving home through advocacy, education, and support of those in need.
This fun and fundraising is all made possible due to the support of this year’s sponsors, who generously stepped in to support our mission of giving back to those in need in the Portland Community.
“ We are grateful to the twenty-eight sponsors who collectively brought record-breaking financial support allowing us to give generously to our two well deserving non-profits, more so than ever before,” says EPB&B President Marc Baker.
