Gulf Coast Benefit PDX

On August 1, the Oregon Bartender’s Guild and LUPEC Portland will be holding a benefit event in Portland, Ore., to support the Gulf oil spill relief efforts. In addition to top-notch cocktails mixed by member of the OBG, there will be southern comfort food made by Anthony Walton of Beaker & Flask and Gregory Smith of Noble Rot, as well as live music and a live auction and raffle to raise money for The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. Nearly a third of America's seafood comes from Louisiana’s waters, and more than 6,000 fishermen in the state's coastal parishes are facing unemployment as a result of the ongoing disaster, so this fund directly helps them during these tough times. So if you live in or around Portland, or you'll be in the area on August 1, be sure to check out this event. Head to oregonbarguild.org to purchase tickets—we hope to see you there!

Date: Sunday, August 1
Time: 3-9 p.m.
Location: DISJECTA, 8371 N. Interstate, Portland, OR
