The event space is an awe-inspiring environment, with all kinds of installation and other art scattered tastefully across the premises. In addition to the expansive main room, there are side lounges with pool tables, couches and more. Have a look at some of the pictures of the Springbox Gallery, located in the "Dirty Pearl," right off the I5/405 freeway in NW Portland: http://www.springbox.us/Resources.cfm?Category=Event+Space.
This event is a party for the people of our city with Portland Mayoral hopeful, Jefferson Smith (http://jeffersonsmith.com/). Unlike any other candidate for the position, Jefferson represents ALL of Portland. Rather than turning his back on the majority of the city and focusing only on high-dollar donors, Jefferson is connecting all peoples of the town; North, NE, East, SE, SW & NW. A graduate of Beaumont, Grant High School, University of Oregon & Harvard Law, he is currently a state representative for the east-side District 47. In fact, if elected, he would be the first mayor ever from east of 82nd Ave in Portland, which is why many call him the "East-Side Champ." In reality, he represents every sector of Portland, and events such as this are indicative of his leadership style and vision for Portland as a whole.
This gala event is not financed one cent by the campaign and is 100% volunteer driven. How much does that say to you? How much does that say about our city and our next leader? 100% Portland!
Space is limited so get your crew together & plan ahead! 21 & over only.
