LiFT Label and Silvania are alike in that they are both social enterprises, meaning social and environmental goals are woven into the fabric of our businesses. That's why our early celebration of Peruvian Independence Day, albeit from the northern latitude of Ecotrust's Pearl district rooftop, has a social mission at its core. CARE Peru began in 1953 to increase access to education and healthcare for rural communities across Peru. What sold me on this organization was their recognition of the important role of educating girls to create thriving communities, sponsoring girls like Eulalia. All proceeds from our event will go to this great organization. Please visit their website (in Spanish) here and the Pisco for Peru fundraising page (in English) here to learn more and donate now.
We are very lucky to have talented friends who will donate their ingenuity and resources to support CARE Peru's work (and provide you with an unforgettable night of music, drinks, and rooftop celebration). Read on for their stories...but first RSVP here! This free event is filling up fast!
The party will take place on the third floor terrace of the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (the Ecotrust building) at 721 NW Ninth Ave, Portland, Oregon, 97209 between 7:00 and 10:00pm.
