Portland Monthly's 12th Annual Light a Fire Awards
On October 14, 350 community leaders joined Portland Monthly and Bank of America for the 12th annual Light a Fire awards. This year's ceremony, at the Portland Art Museum, was filled with Andy Warhol–inspired surprises, including Marilyn Monroes multiplied, a Velvet Underground cover band, live art-making by Jimmy Gersen, inspiring stories, and a Silver Factory after-party—all in celebration of Portland’s most extraordinary change-makers. At the end of the night Portland Community ToolBank was voted favorite nonprofit, and took home the "big check."
