Chevy Shop Social: Portland to Raise Money for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital


Chevy Equinox

Guess what I will be doing in the next five days? If you guessed trying out for the Portland Trail Blazers then you would be wrong. I’m too short and not particularly athletic. At least not anymore. But I am taking part in a special fund-raiser event for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. For five days, I will be driving around in a new Chevy Equinox (this is a fabulous SUV) while shopping around the city for awesome items to be raffled off in the Chevy Shop Social: Portland. The special event will take place in Pioneer Square on May 21st (6pm to 8:30 pm).

Two of my kids spent over two weeks (combined) at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. My wife and I were worried sick during those times. But our kids recovered and today they are as healthy as they can be. So the Chevy Shop Social: Portland fund-raiser event for Doernbecher is very important to me. I hope to raise a lot of money with the package I will be raffling off. But I’m going to need your help. I need suggestions. What do you think I should purchase for the Chevy fund-raiser?

As I mentioned previously, the Chevy Shop Social: Portland event will take place next Thursday (May 21st) in downtown. There will be food trucks, beer and wine, live music and a raffle. I’m actually one of several event ambassadors. The other ambassadors will also have items that will be raffled off for Doernbecher. KGW’s Cathy Marshall is MCing the raffle. There will be a lot of awesome raffle packages at the event. To enter to win a fabulous prize package, just place one or more raffle tickets in the bowl in front of the items you want to win. BTW, raffle tickets are only $2 each. For an even better deal, you can purchase 12 tickets for $10 or 15 tickets for $20.

Actually, I don’t plan giving this Chevy Equinox back — it’s too nice to part with

The party is open to the public — the more the merrier! This is a great cause. Please spread the word and attend if you can.

Chevy Shop Social: Portland is sponsored by Chevrolet and In addition to local food, beverages, and music, you will also be able to see and experience a fleet of brand new Chevy models. I’m hoping to check out Chevy’s Corvette Stingray. That car is sexy!
