About this event

This event is provided by Playworks

Please join us for Playworks’ fourth annual Keep Portland Playful
FUNdraiser, which rolls into Portland’s Providence Park’s KeyBank Club on
November 4, 2016 at 6:00 PM. This fundraiser is a perfect representation of
Playworks: incomparably fun and seriously impactful. This year we are honored
to have Kevin Carroll author, speaker and creative catalyst for social change
as Emcee. You’ll also meet some of our Rockstar coaches and junior coaches.
It’s a celebratory event attended by key sports, business, and education
leaders that features hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and, of course, fun and games
for everyone. Please join us in our mission to improve the health and
well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and
safe, meaningful play for every kid!

We believe in the power of play to bring the best out of every kid. We create
a place on the playground for every kid, a place where they can belong, have
fun, and be part of the game. Our specialty is recess because it is the
single best opportunity to give every kid the chance to play every day.

Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that transforms schools by
providing play and physical activity at recess and throughout the school day.
Playworks restores valuable teaching time, reduces bullying, increases
physical activity and improves the school and learning environment. In the
Pacific Northwest, Playworks partners with more than 150 schools serving
60,000 kids through training and direct service.
