We’ve been taking it easy this week while scheming up some apartment updates (coming soon) and some travel plans (also coming soon.) So, we didn’t get a chance to do too much exploring or photo-taking, but did manage to attend a wonderful gala supporting a very misunderstood disease, Lupus. Chances are you or someone you know is living with or is closely connected to someone living with Lupus. Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus is doing a good, good thing, people. Check out some of the great shots from the gala at The Nines Hotel, Portland’s premier luxury hotel and lifestyle location!
Each year, Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus puts on a fundraising Gala, and each year interior designers from around the Portland area contribute to the design and decoration of the window displays outside the historic Meier & Frank building. This year, each window encompassed an era of style, so naturally we got to dress up as well! 1920’s, because why not? Couldn’t help but snap a shot of us in front of this great mirror!
Nothing like a great cause, some great wine, hors d’ouerves, and company to take your Saturday night to the next level. My coworkers were nice enough to show their support by arriving in full 1920’s garb and donating what they could. It’s easy to get caught up in the everyday grind, worried about ourselves and our own bills and health, and of course we should be, there’s absolutely no shame in putting yourself first. But, we can’t entirely forget the plight of others. Doing what you can may mean all sorts of things. I could mean donating money, volunteering for a fundraiser, or showing support by simply showing up.
I encourage you to find a cause you believe in. Donate time. Donate money. Even just once. Just one dollar. I know it sounds corny, but making a difference feels pretty damn good.
