In June, The Dragontree donated to Basic Rights’ annual gala, Ignite: Get Engaged! The gala celebrates accomplishments and recognizes community leaders, business executives, lawmakers, supporters, and activists who have gone to extraordinary lengths to further equality in Oregon. The gala will be held at the Portland Art Museum on October 11th 7:30pm-11:00pm. Tickets are only $100 for a night of celebration.
For $250 you can join Basic Rights for an intimate evening at Ignite’s VIP dinner and Live Auction, which focuses on fundraising. The Dragontree’s donation, which includes a gift certificate for our Sweet and Simple package (a 20 minute foot massage and a foot bath) and two of our apothecary products will be auctioned at the event.
A little about Basic Rights Oregon: it was founded in 1996 and it is the state’s chief advocacy, education and political organization dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Basic Rights Oregon will ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Oregonians experience equality through building a broad and inclusive politically powerful movement, shifting public opinion and achieving policy victories.
