Hullabaloo Logistics:

Thank you so much for joining us this Friday, October 20th at the Exchange Ballroom for JOIN’s Hullabaloo! This year’s event is a special celebration of JOIN’s 25 years of service to the community and 10,000 doors opened to home. Here are a few logistical details about the event – please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I look forward to seeing all of you on Friday!

Location & Parking
The Exchange Ballroom is located at 123 NE 3rd (between Couch and Davis, near the Burnside Bridge). There is a free parking lot on the west side of the building. Please enter through the west-side doors right by the parking lot and check-in with registration. For your convenience, you will have the option of swiping your credit card at registration and using your bidder number throughout the night to purchase auction items, raffle tickets and more. We have a completely sold-out event with 250 guests attending, so we will try to make the check-in process as quick as possible!

Program Timeline
6-7:15pm: The doors open at 6pm and the silent auction will close promptly at 7:15 – so please arrive in that hour to bid on some incredible items and experiences! There are over 45 packages full of beautiful local art and jewelry, get-aways and staycations, nights out on the town, family-friendly fun, and one-of-a-kind experiences and adventures!
7:20pm-8pm: Enjoy a delicious dinner (with hearty options for meat-eaters, vegetarians, and folks who are gluten-free) and a special performance by Portland’s own Jefferson Dancers!

8pm-9pm: Enjoy comedy from one of Portland’s funniest – Alex Falcone, and a moving program and paddle raise to support JOIN’s vital work in our community. To celebrate JOIN’s 25th Anniversary, The Collins Foundation is matching gifts of $500 or more from new JOIN donors, as well as gifts of $500 or more from upgraded gifts from donors who have given before. If you have questions about your previous giving and what might qualify – please contact me!

9-10pm: It’s the party hour! We’ll kick if off with a raucous game of Heads or Tails, announce the raffle winner, and dance the night away with DJ Alex Hollywood!

The Fun Stuff
The Silent Auction has over 45 packages full of beautiful local art and jewelry, unique items and experiences, get-aways and staycations, and more!
Golden Ticket raffle ~ Only 100 tickets will be sold for a chance to win a three-night get-away to a beautiful beach home in Netarts, Oregon, complete with dinner, drinks, coffee and snacks! Tickets are $25 each. You do not have to be present to win.

The Heads or Tails prize is multi-course Indian Dinner for 10 people, delivered to your home hot and ready to serve! Includes 4 bottles of white wine. You have to play to win!

The Wall of Warmth gives you the chance to purchase beautiful hand-knitted items made especially for the Hullabaloo. Take them home or donate them back to give to people experiencing homelessness – either way, keep JOIN in mind this winter when you’re getting rid of hats, coats, socks and more.

This & That
There is no dress code for this event – you are free to get dolled up or keep it casual! You are welcome no matter what! We do encourage guests to take a Lyft or other cab option if you’d like to let loose and enjoy our generous bar.
