Party in the Square: #ChevyShopSocial Portland

The culmination of Chevy Shop Social: Portland was a party in Pioneer Courthouse Square tonight. Hundreds of people ate yummy food from carts, sampled local beer, wine and cider, and – most importantly – bought raffle tickets to support Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and win fabulous prizes!

This is the package I put together for the raffle – a Wildwood Chronicles-inspired basket full of books and wilderness survival gear!

It was SO much fun to meet up with local bloggers in real life! We see each other online so much, but (even though we live relatively close) we rarely get together in person. So when we do? SELFIES. LOTS OF GROUP SELFIES.

I was really delighted that the person who won my basket in the raffle was SUPER excited about it. I’m so thrilled to introduce the Wildwood Chronicles to new people, since I love them so much. Here is Savanah with her prize:

I hope she is inspired to see Forest Park in a whole new light!

 

All this fun had a great purpose! Doernbecher Children's Hospital receiving a check for more than $10,000!
