A Charity Fundraiser For
Cascade AIDS Project

This is an amazing fundraiser for Cascade AIDS Project (CAP) involving poetry, photography and dignitaries (200+ guests). The event will be held on Friday, September 17, 2010 from 6:30p – 10:00p at the World Forestry Center’s Cheatham Hall in Portland.

We chose to partner with Cascade AIDS Project because of Emmett Wheatfall's personal connection with AIDS - his sister passed years ago of AIDS related complications and he wrote a poem about it. As a result, CAP was the perfect charity to benefit from this fundraiser and we named the event after his poem.

The event itself consists of an intimate reception then a performance piece. The reception will involve music, photography/poetry, a silent auction/raffle, hors d’ oeuvres, and beverages. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on the artwork consisting of Emmett Wheatfall’s poetry incorporating professional photography by local photographer Tony Sibley. All proceeds will go to charity.
The performance part involves dignitaries and community leaders reading Emmett’s poems that are specifically chosen for them.
Please RSVP by September 15th to
