Local chefs and farmers gather for Frank Lloyd Wright event
The Gordon House Conservancy will host their annual fundraiser on Sunday, August 7th in Silverton, Oregon. Area chefs, vintners, brewers, and farmers will be on-hand to offer samples of the latest local fare. Attendees will also have an opportunity to tour the inside of the historic Gordon House.

You're invited to spend a summer Sunday afternoon exploring the relationships of farm, food, family, friends, and Frank Lloyd Wright at the Gordon House on August 7, 2 to 7 p.m. Our slogan is "Frank was a foodie". Join us for live music; live chefs and cheese mongers, live vintners and brewers; live and silent auctions, and lively tour guides with livelier stories to tell. It's a festival and a culinary grazing extravaganza that benefits the preservation of Wright's legacy in Oregon.
This year's early bird sponsors are Pour Wine Bar & Bistro, National Kitchen & Bath Association, Mills College Alumni, Central Bethany Development, and Russell Fellows Properties. You may join these sponsors to assure our event success and learn more by calling 503.874.6006. We will send you an invitation to sponsor with all the specifics and benefits. Please help, we need you.
Make your reservation today: $30 each or $50 for two; a family group of four for $60; or a party of 10 for $200 on line at www.TheGordonHouse.org/events or talk to a real person at 503.874.6006. Mark your calendars now! It's a down-"Wright" fun way to spend a warm summer afternoon in the Willamette Valley.
