Celebrate Victory in the War on Women!
November 9, 2012
Fortunately, 2012 culminated in a stunning victory at the ballot box: We not only re-elected President Obama, but we regained a pro-women’s health majority in the Oregon Legislature! Celebrate with us at our 2nd annual holiday benefit, Naughty Listed: Stories of Holiday Misbehavior, in Portland and Eugene. We’ll set politics aside for the evening while listening to Oregon’s sharpest storytellers sharing hilarious memories of holiday mischief and wintry discontent. (Think: dry turkeys, ugly sweaters, awkward family moments, general humbuggery.)
Tickets are on sale now, so don’t delay! Makes for a great present, too: Give the gift of laughter!
