CHEESE FOR A GOOD CAUSE
A Benefit Event for Black Sheep Creamery  
February 1, 2008  :::  6-9PM 
721 NW 9th Ave
Ecotrust Building – Billy Frank Jr. Conference Center
Portland, Oregon

JOIN Portland area cheesemongers and cheese enthusiasts for the Cheese for a Good Cause fundraiser, to be held at the Ecotrust Building in Portland, Oregon on February 1st, 2008 from 6-9PM.

Northwest cheese lovers are familiar with Black Sheep Creamery, maker of award winning artisan sheep’s milk cheeses. Brad and Meg Gregory, owners and cheesemakers, suffered substantial damage in the storm that hit the Pacific Northwest in December of 2007, losing most of their flock of 80+ sheep and suffering extensive damage to their farmhouse, cheese room, barn and property.

In response, cheese and food enthusiasts are sponsoring this benefit event, dubbed “Cheese for a Good Cause” to raise funds to help the Gregorys rebuild. For a sliding scale entry fee of $25-50, attendees will be able to enjoy wine and beer from local producers, artisan cheese from the Washington Cheesemaker’s Association, the Oregon Cheese Guild, bites from local restaurants Le Pigeon and Park Kitchen as well as chocolate, cured meats and other international specialties from France, Spain, Italy and England.

To attend, RSVP online here; funds will be collected at the door (cash or check only, please). Funds raised will go directly to the Black Sheep Creamery Benefit Fund at Bank of America set up by Beecher’s Handmade Cheese.
