Sponsorship Opportunities

As part of the Mission to Washington DC, we hold our signature Taste the Northwest reception featuring refreshments and hors d’oeuvres from the Pacific Northwest.  Our members donate the Northwest foods and beverages we serve at the reception, and we would love to feature a local flavor from your neck of the woods.  Past examples of donated items include beer, seafood, cheeses, jams, chocolates, and even fresh tulips.  If you are interested, please contact Mary Wiley by email or by telephone at (503) 234-8550.

Monetary donations are also very much appreciated and help to offset the many costs of hosting this popular event. You can sign up to be a Bronze ($500), Silver ($800), Gold ($1,000), or Platinum ($1,500) Level Sponsor when you register to attend the Mission or by contacting Mary Wiley
