Awesome Sponsors!

During these tough times, numerous businesses in Portland and beyond have provided NEDC with a welcome dose of optimism, generosity, and goodwill through dozens of incredible donations.  We’ve been around for over 45 years and can’t recall a greater willingness among businesses and other donors to support our small but mighty organization.  Many of these companies employ socially and environmentally responsible business models, such as Oregon’s benefit-corporation status that requires companies to consider their impact on society and the environment when making business decisions.   While some of them might be household names, many are small, unique companies with great products – check them out.

Or even better, come to the after-party at Pedal Pursuit to view these donations in person and buy raffle tickets to win them! We will have approximately twenty different raffle packages that include various items listed below and are valued at over $100 each for you to enter to win.  Raffle tickets will be 1 for $5, 3 for $10, and 10 for $20. And thanks to our awesome sponsor, Nossa Coffee, we will be offering a bag of their delicious Full Cycle coffee beans to the first 15 people who sign up as new monthly donors.

Finally, we are extremely grateful for Lagunitas Brewing Company’s visionary plan to create a Community Room for non-profits like ours to use for fundraisers like this AND for donating their tasty brews for partygoers to enjoy! This leadership provides enormous savings on event space and drinks for our organizations like ours.  Similarly, Artemis Catering, Portland’s premier, local, organic, and sustainable caterer is generously donating delicious food for hungry cyclists and partygoers to enjoy.  Teams who participate can also enjoy refreshing brewed coffee from Nossa Coffee at the starting line. We hope you can come enjoy to the party and enjoy these wonderful treats!
