Phil Knight 

It’s open bar courtesy Nike’s cofounder, who jumped to 23rd richest on this fall’s Forbes 400 list. Chairman, we know you’re giving more than a billion dollars to Oregon causes, but where’s that LeBron shoe, already? (We kid, Phil, we kid!)

Alex Morgan 

We’ll hide our plastic fruit display from the Portland Thorns forward, currently locked in a legal battle over FIFA’s plans to play next year’s Women’s World Cup on turf instead of natural grass. Alex, after dinner let’s sneak into Providence Park to lay sod.

 Kerry James Marshall 

Conversation will run deep thanks to the MacArthur genius, who stops by the art museum this month. Your paintings exploring race and history hang from MOMA to the Whitney, Kerry. What do you think of this ketchup smiley face?

Michael Gaeta 

The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine’s president is retiring after a decade with the school. Michael, you doubled enrollment and found a new state-of-the-art facility. Could you do some holistic therapy on the public schools?

Astrid Scholza

A hearty farewell toast to Ecotrust’s president as she steps down to start a social impact “exchange.” Astrid, we’ve long admired your fusion of sustainability and economy. Tonight, we’ll celebrate with our finest organic meats and cheeses.
