We hope you can join us on Satruday, February 8, 2020 at the Portland Art Museum for Consano PDX.
After postponing the original September date for the event due to the ceiling collapse at the Portland Art Museum, Consano PDX is BACK ON! We hope you can join us in February for Consano PDX 2019-2020! The theme this year is “the future is now” so put on your favorite “futuristic/space inspired/60s glam” attire to channel the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and celebrate the scientific strides that have been made and the exciting things to come!
You might have heard by now, but the ceiling of the Portland Art Museum Kridel Ballroom, where the Consano event is to be held, collapsed on Tuesday (press release from the museum here). The good news is that no one was hurt. The bad news, is that we cannot have the Consano PDX event there. We are working to come up with a new date and will put out a new save the date soon! We are sending good thoughts to our friends of The Portland Art Museum as they rebuild the iconic room and look forward to celebrating there again soon! Sorry for any inconvenience this causes you!
We hope you can join us on Friday, September 20, 2019 at the Portland Art Museum for Consano PDX 2019.
The theme this year is “the future is now” so put on your favorite “futuristic” attire and celebrate the scientific strides that have been made and the exciting things to come! Also, stay tuned for the big reveal of our “Ripples of Hope” award winner this year. Here’s a clue: he’s one of the most prolific storytellers of our time…. any guesses?
We hope you’ll save the date for Consano PDX on September 20, 2019 at the Portland Art Museum! I don’t know how we’ll top this year’s record fundraising and surprise performance by Storm Large, but our wheels are already turning. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if your company would like to sponsor the event or if you want to be a part of the planning!
Our 2018 “Ripples of Hope” award winner was Season 15 “Top Chef” fan favorite, Chef Fatima Ali. Chef Fati has been incredibly open and honest in sharing her cancer experience with the world. Take a look at the tribute video we put together to honor her featuring messages from fellow contestants Chef Adrienne Cheatham and Chef Christopher Scott as well as from “Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi.
Chef Fati also shared today in Bon Appetite Magazine that her cancer is back:
“The cancer cells my doctors believed had vanished are back with a vengeance in my left hip and femur bone. My oncologist has told me that I have a year to live, with or without the new chemotherapy regimen. I was looking forward to being 30, flirty, and thriving. Guess I have to step it up on the flirting. I have no time to lose.
It’s funny, isn’t it? When we think we have all the time in the world to live, we forget to indulge in the experiences of living. When that choice is yanked away from us, that’s when we scramble to feel. I am desperate to overload my senses in the coming months, making reservations at the world’s best restaurants, reaching out to past lovers and friends, and smothering my family, giving them the time that I so selfishly guarded before.”
Make sure you grab tickets to Consano PDX while they last!
