On Saturday, THF’ers got dressed to the nines and made merry at The Chart House, kicking off the holiday season and celebrating an evening out with our work family and partners. We savored conversations with friends new and old, we laughed, we dined and enjoyed the stunning view of twinkling lights of downtown Portland.

Sharon Soliday regaled us with a funny story about her creative schemes to make friends back when she was in middle school, and thanked all of us for the work we do of putting kids first. And there were, of course, prizes featuring “Press Play” experiences for THF’ers to enjoy with their families.

Our holiday party is a highly anticipated and joyful annual celebration, uniting our vibrant and vivacious community under one roof for the simple pleasures of good food and great conversation. We look forward to ringing in the new year together!
