On Saturday, the Perfectly Pearl modern bridal event is hosting a silent auction to benefit Central Portland Families.

What is a silent auction?
Event participants have donated goods or services that will be auctioned to the highest bidder. We will have the items on display at the silent auction gift table. Each item for bid will have a bid sheet and attendees are able to write in their bid. If you’re the last (and subsequently highest) bid, you’re the winner. Proceeds from this auction will benefit Central Portland Families.

Who is Central Portland Families?

Central Portland Families (CPF) believes that families are good for the central city, and the central city is good for families. CPF serves families that live, work and play in Downtown, Central East Side, Northwest Portland, Old Town Chinatown, and The Pearl by developing programs that build community and an advocacy voice for families. This group of unpaid volunteers is a collaborative effort between parents, grandparents, children, business owners and caring neighbors. Since their formation in November 2007, volunteers have created a free weekly indoor play space for all central Portland children, and founded Family First Sunday to connect neighbors. Volunteers are also educating city leaders to understand that all families in central Portland will benefit if the city fulfills their own published plans to use Urban Renewal Area funding to build a community center, childcare and school.

The Fine Print

  • The silent auction will open at 11 a.m. and close at 3 p.m.
  • Winners will be announced at 3:30.
  • If you have a winning bid, you must pay for the item (cash or check) by March 8.

What’s in the Auction?

It’s a pretty darn impressive list, if I do say so myself. Dare I say, this may not even be all of it? Definitely swing by the silent auction gift table and see what’s available and remember that it’s for a great cause.
