The Multnomah County Democratic Party & Basic Rights Oregon celebrate Bill Dickey, “2015 Hero of the Year.”
The MultDems and Basic Rights Oregon have joined forces to honor a man who truly personifies all that is good. Please join us and show your appreciation and support for Bill Dickey with a sponsorship, and then party with us at the Award Ceremony and Golf Tournament in his honor.
The event includes a Helicopter Golf Ball Drop Raffle! Golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter. The person with the closest ball to the hole will win $1,000. You do not need to be present to win.
A VIP Party will take place on Thursday night, Sept. 10th at 6:30, at the Riverside Country Club. Special Guest: Former Governor Barbara Roberts.
The Golf Tournament will tee off on Friday morning, Sept. 11th followed by the Banquet and Awards, at Riverside Country Club, NE 33rd, Portland.
Bill Dickey has been a major benefactor to this community and this state. From the arts to social services, education to politics, all have been on the receiving end of his generosity, his involvement and his profound interest in making Portland and Oregon a better and fairer place for all. All without fanfare.
Now it’s time to say Thank You.
