2019 Nut Sale
Our sale is now over, but as we did for the last many years, Pride of Portland once again held our Annual Nut Fundraiser in the fall. Buyers chose between almonds, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, Macadamian or mixed! Salted and unsalted! These nuts (many locally grown) are very, VERY tasty (we may or may not have sampled some!), and buyers stocked up for the winter.
Keep your eyes open for news about our 2020 Nut Sale, which takes place in early October.
Fundraising is the life's blood of any non-profit organization. Pride of Portland Chorus is no exception. As the guardians of barbershop performing arts in the Portland area, we feature a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. Our yearly fundraisers are listed in the right-hand column of this page.
Our biggest and most successful event includes our annual show. Not only does the price of admission help defray facility costs but also adds to the war chest that funds regional and International competition expenses. The logistics of moving risers, insuring and storing equipment, and costuming a chorus this size--not to mention competition fees and organizational dues--is gargantuan, so our fundraising efforts are critical to our continued success.
Special fundraising opportunity
Pride of Portland Chorus is asking for your help to help raise funds towards repairing 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 repairs 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 and replacing the metal ramp addition for our riser carts to easily roll up onto the trailer.
