Take one new girl in town. Make her an event planner. Pair her with an invitation designer. Have them dream up a fundraiser for the Red Cross and what do you get? Eve on the Lake, Lake Oswego’s first annual New Year’s Eve celebration set from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at Stickmen Brewery and Skewery, 40 N. State Street. Tickets are $59 if purchased by Monday, December 24; $69 after.
Here’s why you should attend.
- Convenience. If you live in Lake Oswego, you know nothing is too far. Even “across town” means only a ten minute car ride. That beats a $40 cab from downtown Portland or covering the cost of an overnight stay in a hotel.
- Go green. You’ve heard of Shop Local and all the reasons why you should support the effort from supporting local businesses to consuming less resources. The same applies to Party Local.
- Support a good cause. Proceeds from Eve on the Lake go towards Red Cross relief efforts for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Wake up feeling good New Year’s Day because you helped make a difference.
- Tom Grant. Local jazz pianist Tom Grant will be the opening act for the night’s festivities accompanied by Shelly Rudolph.
- It’s a party! Your ticket includes endless hors d’oeuvres, a midnight champagne toast, music and dancing. There will be a photo booth to capture the moment and organizers Whitney Werts with Whitney Werts Events and Nessa Sander of Card Girl Invitations promise they have a few other surprises in store for you.
