Pearl Bakery Displays 2011 Auction Trophies

Gary Wilson's "View of Rialto Bridge - Venice"

Our good friend and Advisory Committee member Eric Lester has found the perfect places for the photographic art work he purchased at the 2011 Focus on Youth Auction- they’re gracing the newly redecorated walls of his Pearl Bakery.

Eric has been very generous with Focus on Youth both in terms of his encouragement and in his financial support. We, in turn, encourage our Focus Friends and Family to say thanks for that support by paying the bakery a visit and indulging themselves in some of the Pearl’s superb baked goods. I was recently asked my opinion of Pearl Bakery and this was my response: “Some of the nicest people in Portland serving some of the best baked goods in Portland to some of the savviest people in Portland.” And it’s true!

We’re deeply grateful to the photographers for their donations AND to all the people who helped make the auction a success by buying the donated works of art.

And this is another great chance to remind you that the PDX Q Center is hosting FOY for a Photography Exhibition and Sale from Jan. 8-14 with a wine and munchies reception on Jan. 12 from 5-7 PM. Hope we see you there!
