The Gala was held in downtown Eugene, in the future home of Lord Leebrick Theatre, which was decorated in "warehouse chic" for the event. BRING supporters mixed it up with the local design community, for a truly one-of-a-kind evening.
Guests were treated to:
* An exclusive trashion show * King Estate wine * Ninkasi beer * Hors d'oeuvres by Cafe Yumm! * Music by the Don Latarski Trio * Door prizes by Robert Canaga.
Thanks to Portland's Junk to Funk and to local designers Mitra Chester of Deluxe, Laura Lee Laroux of Redoux Parlour, Gina Love and Natalie Staggs from the University of Oregon Theater Department, Julia Holtzman, and Terrisa West for making the evening so special.
Designers created wearable works of art with trash contributed by local businesses: NextStep Recycling, Eugene Magazine, 9Wood, Perk Coffee & Espresso, Imagine Group, and BRING.
