Zenger’s Farm to Table dinner is coming up and the auction is filled with covetable items.
Auction interests include:
· House Spirits Distillery tour, dinner and pedicab ride
· Dinner around Portland for one year featuring 12 of Portland’s top restaurants
· Zenger Farm-raised organic turkey and CSA Thanksgiving basket
· Travel for two to Honolulu, Hawaii; includes three days and two nights in Waikiki
· Fruit tree pruning lesson, and more
This is a perfect opportunity for locals to support Zenger’s mission and Portland’s local food movement.
With the annual giving season approaching, I thought it might be interesting to do a roundup of all the great dinners and auctions Portlanders can look forward to – and feel good about! – coming up in the next couple of months.
Let me know if you’d like more info. See below.
