Hosted by Dave Cook & Mary Overgaard, George Eighmey & Peter Livingston, and Robin Pope & Don Johnson, with Chef Jason Howd and Dance Band Marlena Wray
30 Guests - $150 each

Enjoy spectacular views of Portland and four mountains as you dine and dance on the oversized decks of this midcentury modern home. Sumptuous summer delights will be prepared by Chef Jason Howd, and Dance Band Marlena Wray will fill the air with ballroom classics. Marlena was called one of the city’s most talented musicians by the Portland Mercury, so if you can’t resist dancing and want a few ballroom pointers, former Arthur Murray instructor George Eighmey will be on hand for coaching. Don’t miss the backyard Japanese garden (by landscape designer Bill Gerber and enhanced by Takashi Fukada), which features an eight-foot waterfall, fish pond, and gazebo, and was featured in a scene from the movie Say Uncle.

You will begin with a stroll through five garden styles over five and a half acres, on a private tour led by the Portland Japanese Garden’s CEO, Steve Bloom. The tour ends at the Japanese Pavilion, where you will enjoy fine wine and saké while overlooking spectacular views as the summer moon rises over Mount Hood and downtown Portland. A dinner of Asian inspired cuisine will satisfy the palate, and a live Koto performance will ease the mind. The evening would not be complete without tea!
