This coming Wednesday, Januray 25, The Weed Blog will host an Oregon Cannabis Industry Mixer and Networking Event at the Lagunitas Community Room  to benefit Echo Theater Company in Porltand!

The event will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and will include a cash bar, finger foods, and messaging from many leading brands in the Oregon cannabis industry. This will be the first in a series of events that The Weed Blog will host to benefit nonprofits.

One of the most important ways to legitimize and normalize the cannabis conversation and the emerging recreational/adult-use cannabis industry and market is by partnering with local nonprofits that are outside of the cannabis movement.

Echo Theater Company is an arts school that was founded in 1983 and offers classes in acrobatics, trapeze, aerial dance, and physical theater. We have classes, camps, performances and events for ages 1 – 100, and they also are a school with inclusion programs for students with special needs. The school is maintaining what has become an important hub of arts and culture in the iconic Hawthorne District of Portland. The Executive Director of Echo Theater Company will be at the event to tell attendees more about their mission and what they do.

While this event is going to be focused on creating a space for meaningful connections and networking to be done between Oregon cannabis industry professionals, this is also an event that will offer valuable information for consumers as well.

Many leading brands, including producers, product makers and ongoing events, in the Oregon industry have donated amazing raffle prizes and each of them will be speaking briefly at the event and will also be available to answer questions throughout the event. These companies include:

This event will be excellent for anyone who wants to learn more about the Oregon cannabis industry or network with those who are in the industry already…and the prizes are amazing! Check out the Facebook page for more up to date information as well as a peek at some of the raffle prizes. All proceeds from ticket sales, drink sales, and raffle ticket sales will be donated to Echo Theater Company!

Lagunitas Community Room, the venue for this event, is a venue that is dedicated 100% to supporting non-profits with their fundraising efforts. The beer and the space are completely donated so that we can focus on raising the funds that nonprofits like Echo Theater Company needs to carry out its respective mission. Lagunitas  has graciously offered a goodie bag of Lagunitas swag to our raffle prizes as well!

There will not be any on site cannabis consumption or cannabis product sponsorship for this event, but we are thrilled to offer this opportunity for networking and fun as well as a space for people to learn more about our industry.

The more we work together, whether consumer, activist, policy maker, or industry professional, the faster we can push the big wheel forward to end federal cannabis prohibition!

This is a CASH ONLY event! All tickets, drink tokens, and raffle sales will be cash. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. We hope to see you there!
