Wave of Light Recap | Live Wire Radio

 

So Much Love for YOU.

 

On Thursday, October 20th we had our very first benefit event presented by Rejuvenation - held at their beautiful store on SE Grand. Being a first for us, we had no idea what to expect and were absolutely touched at having the support of 200 people, raising nearly $14,000!

 

Live Wire host Courtenay Hameister was the ringleader for this mini Live Wire show with live performances by the Parson Red Heads, Oregon Ballet Theater's Uprising, featuring musical guest Weinland,  Hand2Mouth Theater and Live Wire house poet, Scott Poole, who read from his original work (that was just featured on Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac). Also, Congressman Earl Blumenauer made a special appearance to talk about the importance of the arts to build community and the unique impact of Live Wire! Radio on the Pacific Northwest.

 

All performers donated their time to help us raise money and we are truly grateful to them for sharing their ample talents with us. A HUGE thank you to Rejuvenation for hosting this event, Dig A Pony for providing delicious appetizers and the specialty “Live Wire” cocktail, New Belgium for providing beer, Argyle for providing the bubbly, and St. Cupcake for providing sweet treats. Also, 30 businesses we love donated items for our silent and live auction.  

 

And most importantly, to YOU. Your support is so humbling. After seven years, we keep feeling the love from the community and that means everything. If you didn’t get to attend the event, but love Live Wire! Radio and want to help, please click here. 

 

So much love for you.
