Such an elegant event! The Kridel Ballroom was transformed into a 1940’s era supper club and the Who’s Who of Portland turned up for THE spring society event. Arlene Schnitzer certainly knows how to throw a gala fundraiser.

Harold and Arlene Schnitzer had heard this Cole Porter show the previous summer and loved the show so much, they wanted to create a joint benefit for the Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center and the Portland Chamber Orchestra.

Harold Schnitzer passed away just five days before this event. He and his passionate work for others will be remembered always.

Successful Fundraising Gala in Portland

We has such a great time and there were so many wonder photos, we had a difficult time choosing, so we have a second gallery: Portland’s Glitterati Turns Out to Raise Funds – Pt 2 – Do take a look!

Please remember, if you have a fundraising event coming up or would like to find out more about shows I offer for large galas and more intimate gatherings, I am happy to discuss the possibilities!
