The Barran Liebman team proudly attended and supported the 2016 Rosemary Anderson High School Benefit Gala over the weekend on the evening of Saturday, October 12th, at the Nike World Headquarters in the Tiger Woods Center. It was a lovely evening on a beautiful campus, where there was also an ongoing silent auction, where all proceeds were donated to POIC+RAHS to help provide educational and wrap-around services to over 700 youth of color and those living in poverty. Amy Angel, a partner at Barran Liebman, has actively contributed to the Portland Opportunities Industrialization Center (POIC) since 2015 and was recently elected as the Chair-Elect of the Board of Directors earlier this year. “It was an incredibly fun and inspiring evening and we are grateful to have so much support from our community. RAHS truly appreciates everyone’s time, efforts, and contributions.”
The team was very excited to learn that over $210,000 was raised at the gala in support of POIC+RAHS, where over 260 attendees gathered in support of a great cause. Barran Liebman was fortunate to bring home a beautiful painting from the silent auction, which will proudly be displayed in the office and serve as a reminder of the great work being done by POIC+RAHS. Team Barran Liebman looks forward to continuing their support of this terrific organization, and is excited to see the continued growth of this program and witness the direct impact that this group has on the youth in the community.
