40fwd: The 2013 Tom McCall Legacy Gala & Fundraiser

Friday evening, March 1, 2013, 6:00-8:30 PM
The Benson Hotel, 309 SW Broadway, Portland

In this 40th anniversary year of Oregon's pioneering land use program, it's time to come together to celebrate all that land use planning has done for our state. 

More than just marking this moment, however, we must recommit together to a livable, healthy Oregon for decades to come. 1000 Friends exists to ensure that legacy is honored, and we would love to have you stand with us.

Over good food and Oregon wine on March 1, we'll reconnect with each other and reaffirm our support for Oregon's singular approach to stewardship of our most important asset--our land

We are thrilled to announce that our speakers and activities will include an address by Congressman Earl Blumenauer. We will also be presenting the 2013 Tom McCall Legacy Award to Peter McDonald.

More details of the event's schedule, including additional speakers, will be announced soon! Stay tuned.

Tickets are $100 for individuals, $1000 for a table of ten.
