Last year we launched the first PDX Casino Night to benefit the work of Embrace Oregon. We raised enough funds to renovate 6 visitation rooms at the Midtown child welfare office, where children in foster care spend time with their biological parents.
PDX Casino Night seeks to raise awareness and funds to support Embrace Oregon with its mission to connect caring community members with vulnerable children in foster care and families. Our focus is to communicate the need, raise money, and gather volunteers for a specific vision/project each year.
