Auction Item Sneak Peek

Play Like a Portland Timber

This package begins with dinner at a Portland restaurant for four then over to Jeld-Wen Field to watch an exciting game versus Real Salt Lake on the sideline in the thick of action. You’ll have a once in a lifetime opportunity to be on the pitch with your official Portland Timber scarves to wave in support. Leave this experience with your own 2013 team autographed soccer ball. A night to remember for four true Timbers fans!

                                                        

Work Hard, Play Hard

We all need a work, play balance, this package is all about play. Start your day with a rejuvenating visit to Bellini’s Day Spa with a massage or a facial to de-stress from your work week. For lunch pack your picnic basket with goodies from Elephants Delicatessen and wine from St. John Winery then take your friends for a kayak tour on the Willamette and enjoy scenic views with Portland Kayak Company. Wrap up your busy day with yoga class that bends the mind and stretches the body from Yo Yo Yogi.

 

Play in Wine Country

The home accommodates 8 people, so gather your friends and enjoy a luxurious weekend discovering wines and exploring Oregon wine country at Soter Vineyards, Carlton Winemakers' Studio and Cana's Feast. At the end of your day, return home to a dinner prepared on-site by the home's private chef to be enjoyed under a chandelier in the dining room with a wood burning fireplace.

 

Play in Portlandia

To play in Portland, you need to eat and drink like a Portlander. This awesome package is all about Keeping Portland Playful: coffee, great food and a private whiskey class. Bring nine of your closest your friends to the The Old Gold, in North Portland for a private whiskey class.
