BarbershopHistory.com readers recently nominated Pride of Portland Chorus for FOUR Barbie Awards, which are announced annually following International Competitions (click here for an explanation of what the Barbie Awards are). Pride is pleased as punch to be nominated in the following categories:
Pride of Portland Chorus is asking for your help to help raise funds to repair the trailer we use to transport risers to and from singing events and coaching sessions all over the Portland area and beyond. We've had the trailer for over 10 years and it's in need of serious repairs.
Some of these items include:
* replacing the tongue on the trailer, which has a "surge" brake, not the current standard electric brakes. This will provide more safety for the driver/hauler.
* replacing the worn out plywood on the walls, floors and ramp.
* creating a new transition over the ramp to the floor
* replacing the metal ramp addition for our riser carts to easily roll up on the trailer.
We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is tax-deductible. Please donate if you can; just click the Go Fund Me logo above! We'd appreciate it very much. Thank you!
