$12,944 dollars raised. 45 artists. 76 pieces of original artwork. Dozens of animal friends. Hundreds of attendees. One goal: to help.
On Wednesday, January 29, we hosted a fundraiser with local Portland artist Mike Bennett to raise money for the Australian bushfires. Thanks to the support of the amazing Portland community, we raised OVER TEN THOUSAND dollars for the Australian Wildlife Bushfire Appeal.
The Rogue Eastside Pub was packed to the brim. Over 40 generous, talented and local artists donated more than 75 pieces of art, animal friends posed for selfies, the unipiper serenaded the crowd, and of course, plenty of Rogue beer was enjoyed.
We can't wait to do more events like this in the future where we get to support charities we care about and work with our local community.
Check out the segment on Tonight with Cassidy for an overview of the event.
