Migrate to the Migration Brewing Co. (2828 Northeast Glisan Street Portland, OR 97232) where The Chill Foundation will be hosting a fund raiser to raise money for under privileged urban youth so that they too may enjoy the mountain’s bounty. In their own words, “The Chill Foundation works to provide opportunities for at-risk and under-served youth by building self-esteem and life skills though board sports.” They had me at “hello.” Along side the Chill Foundation, a laundry list of awesome sponsors that includes: Burton Snowboards, K2 Snowboarding, Airblaster, Skullcandy, Electric Goggles, Oregon Surf Adventures, One Ball Jay, Commonwealth Skateboarding, Portland Timbers, Timberline, 2nd Wind Sports, Maple XO Recycled Skateboard Jewelry and US Outdoor will be there in support of and to represent all the young adventurers that wish to better themselves and shred the fresh and jib the best terrains around. There will be live music, an art show, copious amounts beer (duh) with happy hour prices all night, and a plethora of gear to be raffled off! The question is, how do you NOT have fun? That question is of course rhetorical as it is impossible not to have fun looking at art while listening to live music and more importantly donating to a noble cause. If you have other plans, change them, this is an event you don’t want to miss.
