A unique and entertaining event happens Saturday April 20th at the Portland Art Museum’s Whitsell Auditorium. Cost? Only $12 and a can of food for the Oregon Food Bank. I guarantee you will love it. And if you’re into movies and comedy, you’ll love it more. It’s part of the upcoming Food for Thought festival with proceeds going to the Oregon Food Bank. If you’ve never experienced Portland radio’s Live Wire!, you’re in for a treat. I’ve seen their shtick several times. And forgive me for using an overworked word – they are AWESOME. Oh, and check out their special guests below. It’s not often you’ll experience such amazingly accomplished folks all on one Portland stage. Hope to see you there.
