The First-Annual Do Gooders Creativity Awards

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 at 4:14 PM

Why no, I'm not done blabbing about Design Week Portland, coming up Oct 9-13th—not even close. The densely scheduled exhibition of Portland design talent—visual, film, fashion, furniture, letterpress, architecture, and beyond—has galvanized the creative masses in Portland to fling open their doors, network their asses off, and generally show off. On the night of opening day, at the Cleaners, there's a kickoff party that also marks another new first: The 2013 CreativeCares Do-Gooders Awards. Hosts CreativeCares "connect nonprofits with creative volunteers so that together they can achieve a louder voice, a bigger presence and a greater ability to tangibly change the world." In other words they link non-profits with professionals willing to do pro-bono work in fields like social media strategy, web design, event planning, etc. The awards will honor people who've lent a hand in such a way, setting a noble tone for the first-ever design fest. Of course there will also be plenty of refreshments, music from DJ Nature, and a preview of events to come. Mostly Design Week is free or close to it, but they're asking for a $10 donation for the kick-off, which you can get handled right over here. Only 32 tickets left!
