Charity Ball 2017: Girls (Inc.) Just Wanna Have Fun

On Saturday, December 2, along with nearly 400 of our closest friends and supporters, the ladies of Levé danced the night away under the twinkling lights of Castaway in Portland for the 14th Annual Charity Ball. This year, the party was all for Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest, a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

Charity Ball this year continued some of Leve’s traditions, along with new, exciting additions to keep things fresh (did you see that spontaneous conga-line that wrapped around the dance floor?!). We had amazing silent auction items that kept partygoers bidding until the very last minute while our raffle prizes helped stock the wine cellars and bars for a lucky few. New to the party was our beautiful wine wall, which sent everyone who played home with a delicious bottle (or three!) of mystery wine. Congratulations to all our winners!

We had such a great time with Poison Waters last year, we absolutely had to invite her back to lead the crowd in another inspiring call to donation to support Girls Inc. Every dollar raised during the program will help Girls Inc. broaden their reach and support more girls in the Portland and surrounding areas. And just in case our thanks wasn’t enough, Poison treated us to one of her fabulous performances!

It’s been a year for the books and we are so lucky to have partnered with Girls Inc. for 2017. As an all-women organization that prides ourselves on lifting the community (and each other) up, working with a partner who seeks to do the same for girls and lead us closer to a more equitable society was a match made in heaven. Thank you to Girls Inc. and to everyone who attended Charity Ball and contributed throughout the year!
