Level the Playing Field

You're invited to join us at our annual Level the Playing Field event, a celebration and fundraiser benefitting Off the Sideline. This year's event will be held Oct. 25 at the Legacy Emanuel Atrium. During the evening you’ll hear from our guests as they share experiences and tell their stories about youth sports in our communities. This year we're pleased to welcome our featured guests Nat Borchers – two-time Major League Soccer Cup Champion with both Real Salt Lake and the Portland Timbers – and Adrianna Franch – Professional Soccer Player and 2017 NWSL Goalkeeper of the Year. Special thanks to our MVP sponsor adidas, and our supporting sponsors Heritage Bank and NW Natural.

Proceeds help fund scholarships to low-income youth, giving them access to the health and social benefits of participating in team sports. Your $25 ticket includes food, beverages courtesy of Stoller Family Estates and Widmer Brothers Brewing, an adidias employee store pass and prize drawings. This year our prizes include a Columbia River sailing cruise, two nights at a beautiful Black Butte vacation home (including ski passes), a signed Portland Timbers team ball, a Portland Trail Blazers practice jersey signed by Jake Layman and two 100-level game tickets, New Balance backpacks and duffle bags courtesy of Portland Accessories, gift certificates from Lovely's Fifty Fifty and Teote restaurants, and much more. See you at the event!

Even though we’re new, we’re still in the news.
