Hello Portlanders! I have a contest on my Portland blog to see Suffragette for free. As you can guess by the title, the film is about a group of women who drove the movement for the right to vote. We take it for granted today, but there was a time when women were not allowed to vote. Suffragette stars Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter. The free screening for Suffragette is Monday, November 2nd at Regal Bridgeport at 7 pm. I’m giving away 15 early admit passes to see the screening. Each VIP pass is good for two guests. If you are interested in seeing Suffragette (Focus Features), leave a comment below with your first and last name. The deadline to enter is Thursday, October 29th. The winners will be randomly selected.
If you’ve been following me on Twitter, then you know I’ve been busy shopping in a Chevy Equinox loaner for the big Doernbecher raffle. I’ve put together a grill package consisting of a fabulous Traeger Lil Tex Pro Grill and Smoker (sells for $799), $200 in delicious steaks from The Meating Place, a $100 Parr Lumber gift card (for grill accessories and meat rubs), and a great grill recipes book from Powell’s Books. The Chevy Shop Social: Portland fundraiser will take place this Thursday (May 21st) in Pioneer Square on May 21st (starts 6 pm). Raffle tickets are only $2 each (12 tickets for $10, 15 tickets for $20). That means for as little as $2, you can enter to win my grill package that is worth over $1100. Sweet deal, right? As I mentioned before, this is a great cause because raffle proceeds will benefit the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.
