Save the Date: Book Release Party!

Mercy Corps HQ

We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting a book release party for “The Portland Bottom Line” on Wednesday, November 10th from 5-8pm at the Mercy Corps Northwest Gallery (45 SW Ankeny St.) The book release will feature the book’s editors and contributors as well as members from the Mercy Corps Northwest Team.

The event will also serve as a fundraiser for Mercy Corps Northwest! The contributors of this book are generously going to donate the profits to us.

So mark your calendars, get excited, and we’ll see you at the event. Here is a teaser from the book…

(We do need your help. Please email Loren if you know anyone who’d be interested in donating beverages or food (hors d’ouvres) to the event in exchange for a promotion plug.)
