Join us for p:earblossoms 2011 – ALCHEMY, p:ear’s 9th annual fundraiser, an inspiring evening to help raise the funds needed to work successfully with Portland’s increasing numbers of parentless and homeless youth.

Poison Waters, Chris Funk (The Decemberists), Johnna Wells, Holcombe Waller, Candace Bouchard (OBT), Meg Russel (TCP) and others will fill the evening with beauty and magic, leading us through our own metaphorical journey through the cavernous downstairs (filled with over 100 silent auction items, wines, abundant appetizers and the Transformation Bar!) to the journey upstairs, with a full dinner, performances, and 15 item Live Auction, where your hearts will open like your wallets in support of the vital programs at p:ear.

Only 400 seats, so buy your tickets early, and don’t forget the Golden Ticket Raffle, the $100 chance to win any Live Auction Item (including a handcrafted Gold and Ruby Pear Pendant, made especially for this event by Alchemy Jewelers, a luxurious trip to Cabo San Lucas,  an Adventure Alaska Package with Airfare, Party Packages for 30 or 80, and even a Royal Dandie Miniature Pot-Belly Pig! – more on the website soon)!

Q:  What is the catalyst for the healthy transformation of a youth into a sustainable young adult?
A: Someone who cares – YOU!
