Date/Time/Location

Saturday, October 20
5:30-8:30 pm
Hilton Vancouver
301 W 6th St
Vancouver, WA 98660


Parking: Plenty of free street parking around the area. Vancouver Center Building has a “Park & Go” garage located at 6th Street between Columbia and Washington. Fees are $1.25 an hour. Parking is similar to downtown Portland’s Pay & Display parking. Pay at the meter for the amount of time needed and simply attach the receipt to the driver’s side window. Additional parking available on first-come, first-serve at the 4th street lot (one block south of the hotel). Hotel valet parking available for a fee.


Dress: Boots & Bowties is all about FUN. So, mix cocktail attire with your favorite outdoor gear. Example: Last year, one couple showed up in full-on lederhosen. Another accessorized their gown with a climbing rope. And yet another with a snorkel. Anything goes!


Menu

Main: Balsamic Glazed Roasted Beef Brisket with a glazed peppercorn pan jus reduction, season vegetable, and white cheddar mashed potatoes.

Dessert: Bid with your table guests for the sugar sweetness of your choice during our Dessert Dash!

Have a special menu request? If you or any of your guests prefer a vegetarian or vegan dish, or have dietary restrictions, please email details by Tuesday, 10/16 to: courtney@simplepleasuresevents.com

WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

During the program, you’ll learn how your dollars make an impact. We kindly ask you to consider what you’re able to give, because it really does make a difference for our small but mighty organization.

For example, your generous support helps MSHI bring more young people to our world-famous volcano. Through this experience, they gain a greater appreciation of our public lands, acquire lifelong critical thinking and leadership skills, and learn how our connection to the Earth shapes the future for generations to come.

Every level of support influences our ability to serve our community. Join us in our journey to move mountains!
