YWCA of Greater Portland's 26th Annual Inspire Luncheon

The Sentinel Hotel
614 SW 11th Ave
Portland, OR 97205, United States (map)



The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. That’s why in the past year thousands of people have turned to the YWCA seeking ways to constructively respond to the distractions pouring out of Washington DC, Hollywood, and nature in figurative and literal tidal waves. And we’ve provided them with opportunities through our numerous programs and advocacy efforts because we believe change happens individually as well as systemically.

Still, we all hunger for good news, for hope, for something to remind us of our shared humanity.

And that’s what we want to share with you this year at the YWCA’s Annual Inspire Luncheon on April 24, 2018, from 11:00 am to 1:15 pm at the Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland. This year, Imago Theatre will be providing a performance that will force you to suspend your disbelief with their combination of mime, acrobatics, and humor. Internationally acclaimed, Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, the creators of Imago, have been called alchemists, magicians, theatrical animators and physical comedians.

In the words of the Boston Globe:

“Rare theatrical event – family-friendly entertainment … lively … inventive … remarkably acrobatic … mysterious … deeply satisfying … sensational … thrilling … hysterical … truly goofy fun … now, that’s entertainment …”

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to support the work of the YWCA of Greater Portland while enjoying Imago Theatre. I truly believe that on April 24th, you will leave saying to yourself and others, “Now that was time well spent! I am so glad I went!”
