Thank you for celebrating Astraea’s health and completion of her treatment with us! It’s a big day that marks the end of two and a half years of chemotherapy. We have so many to thank for our daughter’s life – The Children’s Cancer Association, the medical teams at Doernbecher and Legacy Emanuel, countless hours of research and many many lives. We would also like to thank you for witnessing and being part of this journey with us.
We have a fun evening planned on September 22nd, with casual entertainment for older and wee ones alike.
For our music together mates TEACHER ARA will be giving us some musical entertainment (maybe a sing-a-long?!?) with her bluesy-jazzy style.
Kelly Campbell of KC Puppetree will be delighting us with a performance and Karen Tobin of Tears of Joy will be providing materials to make the beautiful Healing Horses.
Ninkasi Brewery, Kells Pub and Migration Brewery have all donated beer for the event and more is on the way! Thanks to them both!! For the wine aficionados we will have some wonderful Willamette Valley wines from Zenith Vineyards.
For something more substantial we will have light nibbles and beverages AND the amazing KOI FUSION has agreed to park their food truck on our street for the event! They are a delicious blend of Mexican & Korean and sure to cater to any palette.
Parking space is limited so please park at an angle on Birchwood Rd. Parking is available on Birchwood and SW 87th Ave. If you plan on imbibing and come without wee ones consider taking a cab and sample all the ale you like!
