Location: 114 year-old warehouse beneath the Fremont Bridge

A costume dance party benefiting the Oncology Youth Connection (OYC) is scheduled for Saturday, October 29th at a 114 year-old warehouse beneath the Fremont Bridge in North Portland.

Dubbed a ¬Å“Fund-rager¬Â, the event will feature fire dancers, aerial performances from AWOL Productions and dance hits from DJ Mello and OG One. On the night of the event, spotlights in the sky will signal guests to the party location.

The party is being thrown by Mason Davis and John Cooper, who met this summer volunteering their efforts for the Children's Cancer Association. They are two of the organizers behind the annual Music as Medicine fundraiser, which this year drew 700 guests and raised over $40,000 for local kids and teens battling life-threatening diseases.

Cooper, of Media Drink, and Davis, of Jive Software, said throwing this party fills the void for young professionals in Portland looking to celebrate Halloween in the most memorable way possible. By targeting an emerging demographic for philanthropy, they are bringing together the right crowd, at the right time, for the right reasons.

Davis, a 29-year-old Cancer survivor, said they were pondering a Halloween ¬Å“Fund-rager¬Â when he met the OYC. ¬Å“They invited me out for a good time. I met everyone, shared stories, made friends. Then only one week later I learned that a new acquaintance, Steve Wentworth, was re-diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. That alone made the decision to throw the party pretty easy. It's going to be a celebration. We're going big!¬Â

The OYC is a nonprofit whose mission is to support young people challenged with cancer by providing a community of peers to inspire resilience during and after treatment. Founded in 2008, the OYC is a young organization looking to dramatically broaden the awareness of their cause in the young adult audience we anticipate.

Grant Roesler, founder of the OYC, says he is excited about the opportunity to grow their footprint in the community. ¬Å“The event really is a perfect match for us,¬Â said Roesler. ¬Å“It is young people helping young people. And it’s a great way to show that getting a cancer diagnosis in your young-adult years can’t keep you from making great memories or having an awesome time.¬Â

Backed by personal capital and sponsorship from Widmer Brewing, Apex Real Estate, Power Plumbing, Jillian Rabe LLC, AWOL Productions and Flame-boyant, they are aiming to raise funds and volunteer power for the OYC. The party is available to anyone 21+ or over and alcoholic drinks are inclusive with a ticket purchase. Tickets are on promotion for $50 each at www.FundRagerPdx.com.

  2. Kimi October 20, 2011 at 6:14 pm #

    Most of of the fun people I know are leaving town to go to Vegas for a zombie wedding…. And, yet, I will be here in Portland instead. My first Halloween in years that I won’t have 3 different parties to hop to and party with friends. Clearly, I need this shindig, so that I can meet more friends! Plus – I’m a sucker for fire dancers.

  3. Soco October 20, 2011 at 6:26 pm #

  12. Jason October 21, 2011 at 8:20 am #

    I mix chemotherapy at an OHSU oncology clinic and volunteer at Doernbecher Childrens’ Hospital. I’ve seen firsthand the havoc that cancer can wreak on not only the patient but the families as well. I’d like to dance in solidarity for my patients! If I could afford it I’d already be there! Thank you for this opportunity.

    Been looking around at what party to go to this Halloween and this one sounds super fun! Free tickets would make it even better. :D

  19. Nathan October 22, 2011 at 12:51 pm #

    I am coming to Portland from Pullman, WA. I was there for brewfest and it was amazing. I love Portland. If I could get free tickets it would be even better. There is no comparing the city to my town.

  20. Sarah October 22, 2011 at 6:54 pm #

    sounds like a great party for a good cause!

  21. Jessye October 23, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

    My birthday is on Halloween and I do research on people living with cancer… it’s a match made in heaven! If i could afford to buy tickets to support this cause, I would definitely do so, but I am supporting two people on a ridiculously low salary right now. I would love to be able to attend this event!

  22. Bethlayne October 23, 2011 at 6:35 pm #

    The 29th is my best friends birthday and tickets to the People Under the Bridge fund rager would be the most AMAZING birthday present/celebration ever!!! And the fact that it supports the OYC sort of makes this the most badass Halloween party this year. :)

  23. Michele October 23, 2011 at 6:39 pm #

    This is my first Halloween outside of Alaska, so show me what a real party is! I also work with children so supporting children’s oncology means a lot to me.

  24. Mason Davis October 23, 2011 at 8:21 pm #

    Just wanted to let you guys know that these comments are awesome! I think we’ll extend the give away till mid week to encourage more people to “share” this with their friends.

    Can’t wait for the 29th! It’s going to be rad.

    Best,
    Mason

  25. Cat McGrath October 23, 2011 at 10:09 pm #

    My girlfriend is an aerial performer at this event and I really want to go support her and a great cause, but don’t have the money! Please send me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. miranda ariel October 23, 2011 at 11:08 pm #

  29. Cheryn October 24, 2011 at 4:11 pm #

    SPOTLIGHT!
    I have never EVER been to a Halloween party, nor dressed in costume as an adult. After separating from my husband of nine difficult years, I am liberated! My girl friend and I have our costumes picked out and we are making a night of it! Would LOVE to win tickets <3

    ~C

  30. Cheryn October 24, 2011 at 4:19 pm #

    The pdxpipeline website states tix are $50 but on oregon tickets they are $60. Clarify, pretty please? THANKS!

  31. Mason Davis October 24, 2011 at 4:33 pm #

    Hi Cheryn, tickets ARE $50 if you buy 5 at a time, and regularly priced @ $60. However, we are still running our $20 off promotion which you can activate by entering SPOTLIGHT into the promo field.

    Does that make sense?

    Lastly, here’s the event on Facebook. Please “invite” your friends and share it as you please!

  36. Zed October 26, 2011 at 11:48 am #

    Ok! So first I have never seen fire dancers before, second this is my first Halloween in great Portland, third I have gone through the toughest period in my life to be here today, fourth I don’t know anybody in Oregon and the reason that made me move here is I passed it while traveling one day and everybody was nice with me unlike where I used to live-Oklahoma , fifth I don’t have a girlfriend and been trying so hard but it’s like the God of sucka bum preventing me from finding the right one,for all of the above reasons can you please mend my broken heart with Halloween joy and send me a ticket! May be I will meet somebody،thank you

  41. Jennifer October 26, 2011 at 3:59 pm #

    I’d love the chance to dance the night away in support of the kids. What better way to stand up against cancer and rally for those who fight the awful battle daily! What a thrilling night (I hope to attend)!

  42. Lori October 26, 2011 at 5:02 pm #

    My fiance and I just moved to Portland and don’t know any places to go yet. He’s from Italy and has never experienced an American Halloween… well, any Halloween really! We need to show him a good time!!

    I haven’t been to a big Halloween party in years, and really want to do it up big this year!! I love dressing up in costume, love watching fire dancers, aerial performers & live music, and what’s even better is that all the proceeds are going to a great cause like the Oncology Youth Connection!!

  47. Mark October 27, 2011 at 5:30 pm #

    I lost my best friend last year to cancer and have been a big supporter of non-profits that are committed to education and support of young people challenged with cancer. I love what OYC is doing and would love to be a part. And the event sounds like it’s going to be a blast!

  48. William Smith October 27, 2011 at 5:33 pm #

    Because cancer sucks and I am going as Wonder woman, a dude as wonder woman, Who better to fight cancer!

  49. Jessica Beckett October 27, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

  54. Jenn October 28, 2011 at 12:47 am #

    We spent all our money on costumes, so unless we win tickets to something, we’ll just have to go scare little children till they pee their pants. Which will be hard, because our costumes aren’t scary. Thanks for awesome tickets pdx pipeline! Hope to see you under the bridge

  55. Kim October 28, 2011 at 2:34 am #

    oooooh, I want to see fire dancers!

  56. Amber October 28, 2011 at 7:44 am #

    I’m a cancer buddy with the Childrens Cancer Association. My little “buddy” asked me what I was doing and I told her I was going to dress up like her favorite Mario character (Luigi) and dance with fire dancers to raise money for her. The only problem is that I have no money! PLEASE help me out here.

  57. Cassia October 28, 2011 at 8:22 am #
