We first applied to the City of Portland in April and have been waiting very patiently. We are all very thankful for their decision and we welcome the opportunity to serve this great city!

In a previous post, I mentioned a parent teacher association that was raffling off a new Tesla Model S. It’s been one of our most followed posts. We at Tesla Trips are excited to announce that we are offering an auction package on the International School of Beaverton’s 2013 auction list. The International School of Beaverton’s auction is to raise funds for purchasing 35 new iMacs for the school. The event’s site went live on Friday and will be going on through mid-May. The auction will be on May 11th at 6 PM at Rock Creek Country Club. Some other great auction prizes include a two night stay at the Great Lodges on Mt. Hood, VIP Blazers’ Dance Game Experience, and a summer date night package on the Portland Spirit. Tickets for the event start at $30 for an ‘Auction Ticket’ and include dinner and one drink. If you have more questions about the auction or want to donate, email FRISBauction@gmail.com or call 503-307-2436.

We will be announcing more partnership auctions in the future.
