Event info: Hosted by the fabulous Poison Waters and chaired by the extraordinary Tom Spanbauer, over 400 people will gather together to support p:ear’s 14th year of successfully working with our community’s homeless youth.

Enjoy a sea-shanty performance by Jenny Conlee (of The Decemberists), a gourmet wine dinner, an incredible Live Auction (link) (with vacation trips to Greece and Mazatlan and Wine Dinners with famous local chefs and more…!), a notoriously creative silent auction and a DJ set by Chris Funk!

At p:ear, we meet each young person that walks through our doors where they are. More often than not, our first engagement with a youth is as a port in the storm. We listen, offer safe space, and warm meals. By building relationships based on positive experiences and growth, we can help settle the storm and help p:ear youth navigate their journey to tomorrow…

We look forward to seeing you at p:earblossoms 2016 Port in the Storm! #pearblossoms2016
