Pisco for Peru
Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
Join Portland’s own LiFT Label and Silvania for an unforgettable night of cocktails & fashion on Ecotrust’s sublime summertime roof for an early celebration of Peruvian Independence Day (July 28th) and to help break barriers to education for children in rural Peru!
Martin Zarzar of Pink Martini will be serving up the jams while our Las Primas bartenders are serving up specialty pisco cocktails. While pisco is best known for Pisco Sours, the national cocktail of Peru, we'll be putting a PDX spin on ours with Northwest ingredients and exotic aperitifs to a delightfully multicultural bacchanal.
LiFT & Silvania have teamed up to create a limited edition run of pocket tee shirts and sweatshirts to raise funds and awareness for CARE Peru. In addition, select looks from the LiFT Label and Silvania collections will be available to purchase with 25% of the profits going to CARE Peru.
The event will take place on the third floor terrace of the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (informally called the Ecotrust building) at 721 NW Ninth Ave, Portland, Oregon, 97209 between 7:00 and 10:00pm.
