A Successful Genoa Dinner!

Pear - Creatively Mentoring Homeless Youth

Thank you friends, donors and colleagues for joining us at p:ear’s 2nd Annual Genoa Fundraising Dinner! We raised over $5,000 for our Transition Programs, including our barista training school and housing program!

This, combined with our new $20,000 grant from The Oregon Community Foundation for our barista cart’s new location on SW 3rd and Ankeny, puts us well on our way to our programmatic fundraising goals. p:ear is so successful with Portland’s homeless and parent-less youth due to the generosity and spirit of people like you – THANK YOU!

Congratulations to Tracy Olson – winner of the Urban Date Night Raffle!
