As part of this event, the St. Damien Collaborative will auction a special PORTLAND EXPERIENCE (valued at $4,000), which includes:

  • Round-trip coach airfare for 2 from any major metropolitan airport in the United States to Portland International Airport, plus transportation to KEX Hotel via an Uber gift card
  • 2-night stay in a private King room at the KEX Hotel

St. Damien Pediatric Hospital is the only hospital in the country of 11.5 million people that is dedicated to pediatric and prenatal care. On average, there is only 1 physician per 5,000 persons in Haiti, and it is a challenge every day to find the basic resources, equipment, and medicine to care for families in extreme need. People can help transform lives with a gift.
