The OWLS Dragonflies will launch our 2013 race season with our Third Annual Auction and Fundraiser at the Lucky Labrador Beer Hall at 1925 NW Quimby Street in Portland on Saturday, April 20 from 5:00 pm on. We will have live music, a silent auction (preview catalog), raffle prizes and more!
The OWLS Dragonflies is the official dragon boat team of Oregon Women Lawyers. We implement OWLS's mission statement and values by fostering female mentoring and fellowship, and generally running the team as a shining example of female leadership. To that end, our team has a long tradition of assisting public interest lawyers, new lawyers, and the underemployed with the costs of dragon boat racing, to ensure that no team member is denied the opportunity to participate by her financial situation. Your support in any capacity helps promote our mission and tradition. Plus, we are really fun and you will have a great time!
More information can be found here. We hope to see you there!
