Every eight minutes in Oregon there is a report of child abuse or neglect. At LifeWorks NW we are fighting to keep children safe and families strong through the proven programs at our Children’s Relief Nurseries. 

Now in its 16th year, Portland’s Original Iron Chef raises funds that allow LifeWorks NW to meet the demand for services and extend our reach to help young children and their families thrive. The 2016 event raised more than $125,000 that went to fight child abuse and neglect. The 2017 event takes place Thursday, October 19, from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Portland Art Museum Grand Kridel Ballroom. Guests will taste signature appetizers prepared by celebrated local chefs and vote for their favorite to be named the 2017 Portland’s Original Iron Chef. Plus, the evening features a silent auction, Winner’s Choice raffle, live auction and more!  

Tickets on sale now, and are $125 per person or $1,150 for table of 10. Purchase tickets HERE, or contact cheri.krebs@lifeworksnw.org for more information.
