There is always something special and unique about Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings.
He is also special to Oregonians. Wright’s only Oregon architectural offering is a landmark that resides ‘Wright’ in our own backyard. It is part of that which adds to the uniqueness and pride of excellence that surrounds us.
Our 13th Annual Fundraiser honored the impact Wright's work in Japan had on his organic design. We have hosted over 100,000 visitors to our historic site. Our motto is “Mid-Century Modern Meets the 21st Century” to feature Wright’s original design genius and our preservation efforts that promise a sustainable future. This year we recognize the influence Japan had on Wright’s work in Oregon.
“A Taste of Frank Lloyd Wright” was held at the EastBank Contractor Appliances Showroom at 800 SE Hawthorne Blvd in Portland. Our guests enjoyed: delicious food and wine served in Eastbank’s state of the art kitchen technology showrooms by northwest chefs and Oregon wineries and breweries led by Advanced Sommlier Robert Volz. Live and silent auctions were lively and exciting.
We raised our glasses for a champaign toast to our special event sponsors including GeoDesign, R&H Construction, and Jones Architecture. Our 2015 Annual Sonsors and foundation supporters were also recognized with a big hooray. Over $20,000 was raised to keep the house open for the public with over $6,000 to restore the west balcony. A terrific show of support.
It was a down-“Wright” fun way to spend a Friday after work and launch your weekend. if you did not make it, plan to attend next year.
