The Champagne Ball wants your New Year’s Eve to be about fun and dancing, not standing in line waiting for a drink or to get your picture taken, that’s why we have 16 bars, two complimentary photos booths and three dance floors.

The massive party takes over all three rooms on the Ballroom level at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower. There are two dance floors on the Ballroom level. The party includes a third dance floor on the 23rd floor of the Hilton. This is called the Sky Lounge; it has incredible views of the city.

All this space is needed for the awesome entertainment at the party, which includes Portland’s top 80’s tribute band The Radical Revolution. The Radical Revolution will be playing 80’s rock and dance hits and special guest vocalist Kevin Hahn from the Journey Tribute band Stone in Love will be performing with them. Kevin will be belting out Journey hits and other songs with the band throughout the night.

Additional entertainment includes DJ Sovern-T who will be mixing music and videos from every era on the Ballroom level in the Galleria Room, DJ Thrive will be holding down the third dance floor in Sky Lounge and DJ Bald Wonder will spin before the band starts and during their breaks. GoGo dancers will perform throughout the night on the various dance floors and there’s a video countdown on every dance floor at midnight.

This year a portion of the event’s proceeds go to the Children’s Cancer Association. The CCA offers award-winning programs and resources to seriously ill children (from birth to 18), their families and the medical professionals who care for them. Every program and resource they offer is available to seriously ill children and families that live or seek treatment in Oregon and SW Washington.

DJ Sovern-T will be spinning on the second dance floor in the Galleria Room and DJ Marc Brooks will be in the Sky Lounge. A third DJ will play prior to the band performing and during band breaks.

  3. Scott December 12, 2012 at 8:33 pm #

    A friend of mine and I have been talking about going to this for several years. Each time it gets near, well the money runs out before we get to the end of the year. I would love to go to this event!

  4. Charla December 12, 2012 at 8:47 pm #

    I would be so excited to get the chance to go to the Champagne Ball. Jan 1st is my birthday and the ball would make it so special.

  5. Jay December 12, 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    My girlfriend from Chicago is visiting. I have to show her what Portland has to offer that she wants to move here as well.

  6. Star Truong December 13, 2012 at 9:44 am #

    I’d love to go! This is the first year I’ve ever had a special someone to share New Year’s with and I’d love to be able to share this with my boyfriend =)

  7. PDXPIPELINE December 13, 2012 at 9:46 am #

    @Tristan We give away hundreds of dollars in tickets every week and you certainly don’t have to know anyone at the website to win. Most of our giveaway winners are chosen by the people putting on these events.

  8. Alisha December 13, 2012 at 9:49 am #

    Because I’m freakin Awesome!

  9. Angie December 13, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    I share a NYE birthday with my sister-in-law, and every year I try to plan a big night out, but it never seems to fall into place. I would love to celebrate in style at this event! …and shake it to some great throwback jams!

  10. Al December 13, 2012 at 10:15 am #

    Still haven’t got plans for new years, this looks perfect, way better than club hopping!

  11. Seann Bates December 13, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    Would LOVE to attend this event !!! I heard it was the best NYE party in Portland.

  12. Ellyn December 13, 2012 at 10:39 am #

    Sometimes, when I’m trying on my old prom dresses or drinking wine in the wedding dress I bought at Goodwill, I think “Why doesn’t Portland have a Ball? A real fancy gala where I can wear glass slippers and offer the back of my hand for a polite, greeting kiss in lieu of the fist bump.”
    Just discovered that they do. And it’s on New Years Eve. And there’s CHAMPAGNE!
    The Princess Goddess’ are smiling down on me.
    I have to go!

  13. kristen cooper December 13, 2012 at 10:40 am #

    hi!! I would love love love to get tickets! I haven’t been out in years for nye, and I never get to get fancy and go out with my boyfriend cause he prefers pbr and dive bars. Cant even express how much i would love this!! Thank you!!!!!!

  14. Sian December 13, 2012 at 10:53 am #

    Guess I can dream on….

  15. Andrea December 13, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    Because I’ve been begging my boyfriend of 4 years to let us get dressed up, go out, and have a great time on NYE since I first met him. Just once, I’d love to celebrate with him in style instead of at a dive bar or restaurant – and before we start working on a family. :)

  16. Adrienne B December 13, 2012 at 11:21 am #

    Greeting ticket selection folks! I’m sure there are many deserving people on this feed who should get ’em. Throwing my name in the hat for me and my fiance. Thanks again and congrats to the winners (whomever they are!)

  17. Cassia Look December 13, 2012 at 11:47 am #

    My fiancé just got home from a year in Afghanistan. This would be an amazing way to start our year together.

  18. Melissa perius December 13, 2012 at 11:58 am #

    I would love to go because I have NEVER been to a New Year’s Eve event involving portlands night life before. I have only ever experienced the night life on a typical weekend night.

  19. Randi December 13, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    I wanna go because it sounds awesome and schmancy.

  20. bsrtek kurek December 13, 2012 at 2:04 pm #

  22. Emily December 13, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    New Years EVE! The eve of my birth!!! I need something special this year because I’ve definitely been having some hard times as of late, this would be amazing! :D

  23. Steve Ferrero December 13, 2012 at 3:47 pm #

    The Mrs. and I haven’t been out on New Year’s in a few years. 2012 has kinda sucked so this would be a nice way to kick it’s ass to the curb.

  24. Deanna Jones December 13, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    I would LOVE to go to this and would have my girlfriend pour champagne over her topless body for this!

  25. Tracy Sagal December 13, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to make it to the Champagne ball for years now…will this year be it? Please and thank you PDX Pipeline for your great info and free ticket giveaways!

  26. Sadie December 13, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

    In our fancy fancy finest, we will totally shake our collective booty and be the happiest couple around if we should win these tickets! My husband has a suit designed by Sammy Davis Jr. in the 70’s and, gosh-darn, does he look good in it. Don’t you want to see him? I know you do, so pick us! Love, Sadie and Sammy DJ.

  31. Tammy December 13, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    My boyfriend and I really want to go to this event but can’t afford the tickets. Please please pick me!!! :-)

  32. Amy Crunk December 13, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    It would be amazing if my husband and I could win these tickets. We have 8 children and if we win we will definitely make it happen and have a night to remember.

  33. Dom December 13, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    I have yet to have a good New Year’s….something bad always happens :( Help me break my curse!!!

  36. Maria December 13, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    I would like to give the tickets to some friends that recently got married. This will be their first New Years together!

  37. toby December 13, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    I would love to take my girl to this, we have a “tradition” of getting sick but NOT this year so we need a party!

  38. Nola Borland December 13, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    Partay!!! Please pick me and I will treat my sweet husband to an evening of fun and more fun. This has been a hard year for us, and it would be great to finish it with this gift.

  39. Ralph December 13, 2012 at 6:30 pm #

    Sounds exciting

  40. Jenny December 13, 2012 at 6:39 pm #

    Wants to celebrate this years Portland New Years in style! Cheers!

  42. Lisa December 13, 2012 at 7:13 pm #


  43. Heather December 13, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

  44. thuy December 13, 2012 at 9:48 pm #

    It would be the most classy new years ever!

  45. tess poat December 13, 2012 at 11:13 pm #

    My partner and I have had a rough year; from family tragedies to personal & financial issues, and we would so love to do something nice for the holiday. Winning this would be a dream.

  46. April December 13, 2012 at 11:29 pm #

    Sounds like a great way to start off the new year.

  47. Alisa December 14, 2012 at 12:37 am #

    I’d love to kiss him here at midnight :)

  48. arlen marsh December 14, 2012 at 2:20 am #

    I would even break out my suit and tie

  49. luke December 14, 2012 at 5:00 am #

    I know the guy who runs this site unlike Tristan, so I think I should win. Go blazers, does that help.

  50. Rachel December 14, 2012 at 5:35 am #

    The friend I’d love to take to this LOVES Journey so it would be perfect!

  51. Tina December 14, 2012 at 5:59 am #

    3 dance floors !! 80’s music!!! 16 bars!! What more to ask … This is just perfect !! Pick me please ;-)

  52. Kristine December 14, 2012 at 7:03 am #

    I moved to Vermont this year, but will be back for New Year’s to visit my boyfriend. We have been trying to think of something to do for this special evening, our first New Year’s Eve together, and I think it would blow his mind if I came up with some tickets to this fabulous event. We both love 80s music and being overdressed, so it just seems like the perfect thing. Thanks for considering us!

  53. Jade December 14, 2012 at 8:19 am #

    My husband hasn’t shaved since pre-Movember, and this would be the perfect reason to put on a suit and get rid of that patchy scruff.

  54. Donna December 14, 2012 at 8:23 am #

    Would soooo love to go to the champagne ball… It’s been a rough year and it would be a great way to start the new year. Cheers! Here’s to 2013!

  55. Sherry December 14, 2012 at 8:43 am #

    This sounds SO incredibly fun & certainly something I would never be able to afford doing on my own. PLEASE SEND ME! My little black dress has been sitting in the back of my closet for so long it’s starting to gather dust. PLEASE SEND ME!Save me from yet another New Year’s Eve of sitting in front of the TV watching other people have fun. PLEASE SEND ME!Thanks for the chance PDX Pipeline!!

  56. mike cummings December 14, 2012 at 9:21 am #

    For my wife, to start a fresh new year

  57. Monica Burnett December 14, 2012 at 10:11 am #

    I haven’t done anything for New Year’s Eve in 5 years. Please help me break this viscous cycle!

  58. Steve Burnett December 14, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    I have two kids, work full time and go to school full time, I need a break!!!!! Please help a brotha out!

  59. Danielle December 14, 2012 at 11:46 am #

    Sounds exquisitely FANCY ;) I think I could hang.

  60. Taylor Koering December 14, 2012 at 11:51 am #

    Sounds like a blast! Have always thought about going to this, but have yet to make it.

  61. Lucy December 14, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

  62. Maiyah December 14, 2012 at 1:54 pm #

  63. amanda December 14, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

I’m available even if i don’t win tix!! happy new years guys!

  64. Leonard December 14, 2012 at 5:46 pm #

    sounds like the perfect NYE!

  65. Cyndy December 14, 2012 at 6:09 pm #

    Because I’ve never been to a real New Year’s Eve ball. I have plenty of fancy clothes, just need an excuse to wear them!

  66. Radley December 14, 2012 at 6:17 pm #

    I’d love to win because I’m new to the area and my fiance and i have not had a whole lot of adult time since our sons birth 2 years ago!.

  67. Mathew December 14, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    My lovely girlfriend from Chicago is coming to see me and she deserves to do something special. I’m a college student and don’t have a lot of money so help me out?

  68. Samantha December 14, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

  72. anntonett December 15, 2012 at 9:51 am #

    I would love to send the night out for the New years and go to this great event and have a good time. I have three children one disabled and I rarely get to get out and just have fun by myself

  73. Toni December 15, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    I just moved back to Oregon after 4 years abroad (and a long-distance relationship of 3 years), and am so excited to FINALLY get to kiss my boyfriend at midnight. Getting to do it under the ball at the Hilton (aka the hottest party in town!) would make it that much sweeter. :D

  74. KJ December 15, 2012 at 10:30 am #

    I have always wanted to go to the Champagne Ball. Dancing the night away is a perfect way to spend NYE!

  75. Ian December 15, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    Classy way to bring in the new year!

  76. Rickina December 15, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    Moved here to help a family member a few weeks ago; would love to take the time and go out on New Years Eve. Over the last 8 years I have been the ‘baby sitter’ to children of all ages and would love the chance to go out and start the new year in my new city! Thank you for the contest and know whomever wins this will be elated! (hoping hehehe)

  77. Miye December 15, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    Would love to win tickets to this event. Jon and I are celebrating our first new year’s event together and it would also be our first time at the ball.

  78. Ashley December 15, 2012 at 8:25 pm #

    My best friend and I will be alone while all of our friends are out of town. This would be a fun way to get out and celebrate!

  79. June December 15, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

    I definitely need to dance and drink 2012 away……cheers to a better year in 2013!

  80. Jill December 16, 2012 at 2:53 am #

    Three be the things I shall never attain: envy, content and sufficient champagne.

  81. bree reese December 16, 2012 at 3:52 am #

    I <3 champagne!

  82. Jason December 16, 2012 at 10:55 am #

  83. jason December 16, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

  86. Sarah December 16, 2012 at 6:32 pm #

    Sounds like fun!

  87. Pdx_fan December 16, 2012 at 7:03 pm #

    Where to start . . . After a year of struggles due to job loss and a family death, the champagne ball would be an AMAZING way to ring in the new year! We’d put those tickets togoid use, that’s for sure!!!!!!

  88. megan December 16, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    I would like to win because my sister is working this event and I would love to spend NYE with her. Plus, I want to dance and wear something fancy.

  89. Christie December 16, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

    Would love to go to this….Have seen both the radical revolution and Stone in Love before and had a GREAT time…Getting kind of old and painful, so will have to give up such activities soon, but would to go to this event before I can’t do it anymore.

  90. Cari December 16, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

    Sounds like an amazing time! can’t wait to get all dressed up!!!

  91. Joy December 16, 2012 at 10:06 pm #

    I would love to give my little sis the 21st birthday she deserves!

  92. Mel December 17, 2012 at 12:22 am #

    I just turned 21 and would love to win this to ring out the new year in style and class!

  93. Sharron Stanley December 17, 2012 at 12:23 am #

    i am newly engaged and my fiancé and i have never gotten to really get dressed up and watch the ball drop. We have had a tough year. All the vows you say at your wedding we have been through this year. I can’t get him anything for Christmas, so I’m asking you to pick me to win tickets to the NYE Champagne ball. It would mean the world to both of us and give us a positive head start for 2013. Thanks and merry Christmas

  94. Naomi December 17, 2012 at 2:46 am #

    My husband and I are celebrating our first year of marriage as well as his 100% recovery from his injuries in Afghanistan. We are ready to celebrate life in style for 2013.

  95. Rosie December 17, 2012 at 6:22 am #

    I’ve never been in the city for New Years – it’s always some family function in a house. I wanna go out!!!

  96. Jeff M. December 17, 2012 at 10:09 am #

    This party looks amazing! This would make my year to attend this and meet new people in PDX

  97. Danielle December 17, 2012 at 11:45 am #

    I am 33 years old, I am a divorced single mother of an 8 year old. In all my life, I have never truly celebrated ringing in the new year. I have a new man in my life, whom my daughter has recently begun to call “daddy.” He also has never celebrated the new year. We would be blessed beyond measure, to be able to celebrate our first new year together.

  98. Trixie December 17, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    This party sounds like a beast. Pullin’ for the luck of the devil!

  99. Trixie December 17, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    Sounds like a hootenany- luck of the devil be with me!

  100. Toby December 17, 2012 at 8:42 pm #

    Would really appreciate the tickets, thanks for doing this!

  101. Matthew December 17, 2012 at 10:01 pm #

    One can hope to win tickets for this, it will be the first NYE in years that might not suck. Crossing fingers.

  102. Melissa December 17, 2012 at 10:35 pm #

    This party sounds so amazing I am coming down from Seattle to go! All I need now is a ticket!

  103. Emily P December 18, 2012 at 12:52 am #

    Because I need to celebrate escaping England and coming to this wonderful city 1 year ago!

  104. Ravyn December 18, 2012 at 6:01 am #

    For the past five New Year’s, I’ve been so indecisive about making plans that I end up at home sitting on the couch watching Twilight Zone Marathons. Also, Journey is my favorite band and I’ve never had the chance to see Stone In Love yet — so getting to celebrate a new year and hear the lead singer of the top Journey cover band sounds amazing!

  105. April crawford December 18, 2012 at 8:48 am #

    We would absolutely love to attend!!!!

  106. Angel December 18, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    I am so glad I found PDX pipeline! In my hometown we had theme dance parties every other week and PDX pipeline pulls together every thing I need to know. Plus the chance to win tickets is exciting. I have retro duds I could wear to this party and cannot wait to see the skyline. I have lived here only two months and have yet to see Portland from high up. Hope I win!

  107. amanda December 18, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    Did they pick a winner yet? How do we know?

  108. Laurie December 18, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

    my ex-boyfriend is coming to visit me during Christmas with the intent of getting back together. two years ago he was up here for Christmas and we broke up Dec 31st and he drove home that night. I want to make it right and bring in the new year with a new relationship the right way and make those sad memories a thing of the past. This would be an amazing new start for us – much needed. Please give me the tickets! =)

  109. Brent J December 18, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    My girlfriend has been living on Monkey Island, Oklahoma for the past 6 months and she’s been bored to death! You have no idea what a nightmare of a place it really is. She’s finally moving back to Portland on Saturday Dec. 29, we’re planning to be married next month, and we were hoping to bring in the new year (as well as her return to Portland) in Grand Fashion with live music, dancing all night, looking out on the City from the Hilton Penthouse, and drinking champagne (responsibly) / I plan to be the designated driver. So it would be fantastic to land two tickets to this show, especially since Journey was one of our favorite bands in the 80s – and since “Don’t Stop Believing” perfectly sums up our situation!! Hope to see you there! – Brent J

    I want free tickets! New Years Eve is so expensive & I don’t want to be lame & stay at home but I also can’t see spending all of my money so I ring in the new year broke! If I get picked for the free tickets I promise I will bring the partay!! :)

  111. Archell Banta December 18, 2012 at 7:49 pm #

    I know that it says that the tickets were to be awarded yesterday, but I am going to try anyway. I have had major transitions this year and will be celebrating my first adult New Years in over 12 years. I became a single mom three years ago and have been transforming ever since. I have found the perfect little black dress (that was on sale). I am currently not working because I just earned my two year degree with double honors – I don’t have the resources to pay to go to such a lavish event. My girlfriend (also a single mom, w no help from the father) just went back to earn her Bachlors. Please consider granting us the PRIVERLAGE to go to your amazing event.

  112. Ariel Johnson December 18, 2012 at 8:19 pm #

    I have never been out on NYE. I’ve always dreamed of getting all fancy and going out with my squeeze and just be an adult again. Plus in lieu of my pending divorce, what better way to celebrate! ;) haha.

  113. Darrell holmes December 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm #

    It is my spouses birthday the 27 of dec and mine is jan 1 we have never been to one of these before and would love to be part of the celebration

  114. Lindsay December 18, 2012 at 8:42 pm #

    This is the excuse I’m looking for, to dress up fancy! ha! ;)

    happy new year, people!

  115. Joanna Hanson December 18, 2012 at 9:42 pm #

    I want to go sooooo badly. If I won tickets I just might start believing in christmas miracles. . . . pick me!

  116. Wayne Taylor December 19, 2012 at 12:40 pm #

    I love champagne and I love balls!

  117. Gene December 19, 2012 at 2:17 pm #

    Sounds fun!

  118. Barbi December 19, 2012 at 3:13 pm #

    My friend and I have decided to head down to Portland for NYE from Seattle. We booked a room at the Hilton, and then I stumbled upon this website when doing research on where to go. This indeed looks like THE NYE celebration to attend in Portland. We would love to be considered for the free tickets. We have other friends who are going to join, and we will have them buy their tickets as soon as we win ours!

  119. Oscar Marquez December 19, 2012 at 7:26 pm #

    My wife is begging me to take her

  120. Devinnie Castaneda December 19, 2012 at 7:28 pm #

    I would love to attend this year, Happy Holidays :-)

  121. Hanna December 19, 2012 at 9:44 pm #

    A friend from Sweden is visiting for New Years eve, would love to show him what Portland is all about!

  122. Kyle December 20, 2012 at 12:10 pm #

    Would love to be there. My girlfriend and I never been to a ball before.

  123. Shar December 20, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

    Crossing my fingers you pick me!! I need to escape reality and party the night away. No drinking and driving for this gal. :)

  124. Aaron December 20, 2012 at 1:30 pm #

  125. Gisele December 20, 2012 at 2:08 pm #

    I want the tickets because I have been in the house for new year eve for the past 5 years with a nice husband sleeping in the sofa after 12:01 am. Pleaaaseee I want to have a great NEW YEAR EVE, this year and celebrate a lot. Thank you.!

  126. Ryan December 20, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    I want to attend the new year’s party because it is the best one in town and it is to benefit a wonderful cause!

  127. Jennifer December 20, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    I have been looking for some way to bring in the new year…this would be perfect! Happy New Year!

  128. Paaaav December 20, 2012 at 2:37 pm #

    I just got the perfect vest for this.

  129. Yuri December 20, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    I want to go go go see the GoGo dancers!!!

  130. Jon Pauletto December 20, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    Has anyone seriously won tickets from posting in the comments? Would love to go to this!

  131. jazz December 20, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

  132. Steve Burnett December 20, 2012 at 3:53 pm #

    I may have already begged to win this, I’m not sure, so I’m begging again just in case!!

  133. Gabrielle December 20, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    I want to go because I’ve got some sparkly shoes and a cute date!!

  134. Sarah December 20, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to go to this event!

  135. Alex December 20, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    because it sounds lovely

  136. Bill Stewart December 20, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

    We just moved to Portland and would love to start the New Year with a Bang!

  137. Beth Martin December 20, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

    fancy fancy fancy! I’d love to dance the night away at this party! Sounds amazing!

  138. Steve Duarte December 20, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    This should be amazing. I have worked in the entertainment industry my entire career, always working, usually in Portland, for NYE events and this year I have a rare opportunity to pass on my work at the Rose Garden and the Hawks. Sure would be nice to win last minute for such a cool NYE Party instead.

  139. Alethea Smartt LaRowe December 20, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    I’m having hip surgery in early January so want to celebrate standing up while I still can!

  140. Allyson December 20, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

    Would love an opportunity to get fancied up!

  141. Star December 20, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    My fiance and I need something super special to do this NYE. I’ve been a pratically unemployed substitute all year long, and we need a fun fresh start to 2013! This would be an amazing way to start it.

  142. Yvette December 20, 2012 at 4:32 pm #

    I’m spending NY’s ALONE!!! To win these tickets would mean the world to me…I’ve had a REALLY rough year and to have a little fun at the end would make bringing in the new year a little brighter. I’ve NEVER won anything and this would be a wonderful first! Please consider me!!!!

  143. Ralph December 20, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    A classy new years party to take my classy lady to.

  144. Temple December 20, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    yes, please!

  145. Aksana Kostuseva December 20, 2012 at 4:50 pm #

    This life is way too short, so I don’t feel like wasting one of the greatest nights of the year on Chinese food and late TV shows. The New Years Eve should be delightful and unforgettable, and The Champagne Ball is just the right place to celebrate the miracle of life!

  146. Tiger December 20, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    My boyfriend “borrowed” my velour cheetah leggings and he will not give them back, so my plan is to get him drunk on champagne and wrestle him out of them in one of your photobooths.

  147. Snowflake December 20, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    It would be wonderful to go! Sounds like a great party.

  148. Gus December 20, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    I need a way to really impress this girl, and I think this just might do it.

  149. PQ December 20, 2012 at 5:26 pm #

  152. natalie December 20, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

    I recently reconnected with someone I’ve known on and off since we were 10. I’d been back living in portland after being away for the better part of seven years. He happened to return from a year in australia just weeks before I had to move out of state. Although we didn’t get much time together we clicked. I miss him so much! The distance has been hard so I figured out how to get back to the city for new years eve and really want it to be a special night but since he’s still looking for work and I put all my extra money this month into the plane ticket we don’t have much in the way of funds. please help by giving us a fun adventure!

  153. Sarah Miller December 20, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

    Please please!! We have never been to a formal party to ring in the new year and this year we need it more than ever. It’s been quite the year with losing family and other changes :( We have lots of hope and excitement for the new year and would adore the chance to attend!!

  154. Heather Umphrey December 20, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    We have had a really good year, but unfortunately my husband was just laid off from work three weeks ago and it would be nice to lift his spirits by attending the champagne ball. We could celebrate the past year and start off with a big bang for the new year and new job…hopefully. Thanks for considering us and happy holidays : )

  155. Tarehna Wicker December 20, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    Because I haven’t been out for New Year’s Eve since before the kids were born – 9 YEARS AGO!! :)

  156. Anna Stokkeland December 20, 2012 at 5:57 pm #

    My husband and I were married on New Years Eve!! This will be our 12th anniversary and we moved to Portland 6 years ago and just love it here. We would love to have the chance to celebrate with all and have everyone celebrate with us!! We Love Portland, here to stay!! Our funds are quite limited this year as I am the only employed one, so this would be more than special for us. Thanks for listening. Happy Holidays to all.

  177. Sara December 21, 2012 at 12:06 am #

    This is my first NYE away from my best friends and it is my first NYE in Portland. I want to make it a special night for myself and my husband. Portland has been so great to us since our move here in January and I cannot wait to ring in 2013 in my favorite place in the country. Winning tickets would guarantee a fun night out trying something new.

  178. Ken White December 21, 2012 at 3:47 am #

    I have a special lady in my life in Portland. I live near San Francisco, fly up to Portland every other weekend, and I absolutely know she would love to attend this ball. I hope luck is with me.

  179. HelenKate December 21, 2012 at 7:18 am #

    A benefit for the CCA in a gorgeous setting with views of our amazing city…yes please! What a wonderful way to ring in the new year, dressed beautifully and in the heart of Portland. I would love to attend!

  180. maya December 21, 2012 at 7:24 am #

  182. Buster December 21, 2012 at 9:32 am #

  184. Boomerpdx December 21, 2012 at 10:00 am #

    The last few NYEs have been fun mellow evenings with friends – time for a party!

  185. Stephanie December 21, 2012 at 12:11 pm #


    I have been married for 17 years to a great guy. He is reluctant to go out on New Years Eve. He is a little down since he has been unemployed for two years and is getting over a critical illness. I think he is mostly concerned about spending the money. I understand his reasoning.

    I love to go out and my friends have tickets to your Champagne Ball! I cannot afford it since I am in a job transition also. If you are giving away tickets, we would love to go.


  186. Melissa December 21, 2012 at 12:24 pm #

    I would love to win tickets to this! I have my cousin coming in to town from New York and I would love to show her a fabulous time her in Portland. This event seems like it would be right up our alley.

  187. birdonit December 21, 2012 at 12:40 pm #

    I’ve been hiding my secret fancy side for a long time…I think New Year’s is a good time to bust it out.

  188. Angie December 21, 2012 at 1:24 pm #

    I need a place to wear my cocktail dress… I will bring the classy, I promise!

  189. Mickey December 21, 2012 at 2:42 pm #

    This is the first New Year my Love and I get to celebrate together. Neither of us has been to the Champaign Ball but it would be wonderful to surprise him with tickets and take him there!

    I’m in love; rarely does my boyfriend take me dancing, but this is one night where I’ll get to enjoy a fine event with him with the added pleasure of seeing him all dressed up would make this New Years special. He works a lot and doesn’t get out into his city of origin much, so I’d like to surprise him with a big cultural experience for New Year’s 2013. Thank you!

  202. Jen Ferrero December 22, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

  205. Shanna December 23, 2012 at 5:36 am #

    I need to be at a Fabulous New Year’s party!! I’ve never ever been to a party where they had confetti and people dressed up! I want to be with Fabulous people at a badass party and ring in the New Year with LOVE and Great Energy!!!

  206. Cora Price December 23, 2012 at 10:08 am #

    I would like to win because i am a new mom to a 16 month old baby girl and it would be a nice break. I’m also in school studying to become a nurse and just completed my first term with a 4.0. I was recently diagnosed with ACM and syringomyelia two months ago which is a condition that is in the brain and spine, i am scheduled for brain surgery at the end of January/beginning of February and winning this would be a nice break from thinking about it all. I never win cool things like this so it would be a nice treat :)

  213. Travis December 23, 2012 at 10:55 pm #

    Sounds like three floors of awesome. Hope it is a blast!

  214. Angel December 24, 2012 at 1:30 am #

    I would love to be able to take my hard working hubby downtown for a night of fun…(its the first time in 5 years we haven’t had to work on new years eve). He would be super surprised!

  215. Jenny December 24, 2012 at 7:45 am #

  216. Asya December 24, 2012 at 7:49 am #

    My friends have told me this is a fun and classy event and I’d like to find out for myself. I have the dress, the guy, and the celebratory spirit. If I won tickets, I know my boyfriend and I would live it up like it’s 1999!

  219. Sean December 24, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    It’s been 13 years since I’ve done a “real” NYE celebration so I’d say it’s about time to step it back up.

  220. Rebecca December 25, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

    I would love to go, I haven’t been out for New Years ever.

  221. michelle December 25, 2012 at 7:34 pm #

    i would love to go our for new years, my husband just lost his job and we had a family member pass away in the last month. This would be a nice surprise for the hubby to cheer him up. Please pick us.

    I think we all know how exhausting Christmas can be. Running from in-law to in-law, we need a break from the craziness! My wife and I need a exhilarating and fresh start this new year. How about sending us to a great party?

    I was once asked “what 3 things would you bring to a deserted island” I would bring some sand, a coconut and some salt water…..
    It’s obvious I need some adult interaction and social festivities to re-set my priorities for 2013. This is a cry for help :)

    It has been a rough year, however we are not complaining. We have survived the death of my Mother and my cousin, my Husband’s mother had a cancer scare (all ok), my father-in-law received a terminal diagnosis, however he is responding well, my first eye surgery in Jan failed, the one I just had was a success and I can see clearly for the first time in 2 years and 8 months. I found a breast lump and the biospy came back ok. Then we lost our dog of 15years. We were at the Mall during the shooting and then Ct happened. We lost our son in 2010 and you are never the same. It was a quiet Christmas remembering those who lost so much. I had another surgery and it is not going quite the way we planned, however I will be healthier and stronger in the New Year.
    It is just Life and we are Living it, surrounded by wonderful family and friends. Most importantly, my husband and I are still together, side by side, hand in hand and still in love. It would be nice to attend the party at the Hilton and start the New Year surrounded by joy and laughter and Life. Thank you. Happy New Year

    I really want to take my mom and freak her out because she is really conservative. She came in from a small town in Indiana.

    Well, I’m just a free bird looking for a new adventure. Last year I was on the inside passage in Alaska, watching the fireworks form a barge on the water. I was considering climbing to the top of a building and trying my hand a chopping off the top of a champaign bottle (seems like a pretty cool trick) and watching the city lights from below. But a classy black tie affair may be just what the doctor ordered.

    I would love to attend Champagne Ball for the first time! This is my last new years in Portland, my home town.would love to rage one last time :-) cheers!

    I have lived in Portland/Vancouver area for 20 years and never have attended a New Year’s Eve party that wasn’t at my parents house. That might be because for the 12 years I have been in the workforce, I have never had a New Year’s Eve off until this year. I made a career change and now I am finally free! Please make this my best New Year EVER!
