What: coffeelandia, a celebration of coffee & Portland (21+ only)
Where: Outside of Portland Roasting Coffee — SE 7th and Oak
When: April 20, 2012 7pm-11pm
Why: Help Portland Global Initiatives and Global Brigades fund water stewardship projects in Honduras (100% of proceeds go to water projects)
coffeelandia is a mythical place where coffee, food, beer, wine and song co-mingle in an open and accepting environment. It’s full of fun people, loud music and never-ending surprises. And for one night in April we’ll make coffeelandia come to life, with your help!
Portland Roasting and Portland Global Initiatives have once again teamed up to raise money for water projects throughout the world. coffeelandia is, at it’s heart, a fundraiser to support PGI & Global Brigades with their water-stewardship work in Honduras. Come and join us for an evening of friends, food, music and lively fun. coffeelandia will feature local bands, local food, local beer and liquor (coffee themed!) and many fun only-in-Portland surprises. And on top of all of this we’ll be raffling away a free trip to a coffee growing country, generously donated by Delta Airlines.
Because this is primarily a fundraiser, we’re suggesting a $10 entrance donation. This small contribution will provide you with three drinks (more drink tickets will be available) and live music all night long featuring Tezeta Band, the dance stylings of PURE, and the wildly popular Karaoke from Hell (better start practicing!). There will also be sumo wrestling (grudge match anyone?) and tastings of many fine local coffee beers and coffee liquors. In fact, you’ll get a chance to vote for your favorite coffee beer and coffee liquor. There will be lots of fun surprises throughout the evening as well.
Mark your calendar for Friday April 20th, and come join us for the city’s best party. You do NOT want to miss it! The fun starts at 7pm so don’t be late.
