December 23, 1:30am, a group of dancers, comedians & musicians from Portland, Oregon went on a $4,500 shopping spree to benefit the kids at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
Hours earlier, the money was raised during TATAS for TOYS, an annual event hosted by comedian Aaron Ross, where a dozen of the Rose City’s finest strippers presented the party of the year to a generous audience at Dante’s.
By 3:00am, these merry men and women were unloading bin after bin of toys at the hospital, so that when the brave children of Doernbecher awoke on Christmas, they would have plenty of presents to brighten their day.
These photos and video recap an event like no other, that brought just as much pleasure to those who did the shopping, as it did to those who received the presents. Thank you to our sponsors that donated to the cause, including Bowyer & Fletcher, Bull Run Distillery, Devil’s Point, Green Dragon, Fat Heads, Jim Beam, Kit Kat Club, NW Elixirs Hott Sauce, Lucky Devil Lounge, Original New York Seltzer, Paul’s Cigars, Sassy’s, Taboo Video, Voodoo Doughnut, and Widmer Brewing!
We are very grateful to all those who assisted in helping us break our $4k goal, and look forward to setting new marks of excellence in 2016!
