Caffé Vita Celebrates and Supports Blue Hour in PDX…

| September 15, 2010

The weekend we accepted a gracious invitation from Blue Hour’s Bruce Carey to attend a stellar celebration for Blue Hour’s 10th anniversary. The party was actually a benefit to raise money for Mercy Corps and included copious amounts of delicious food and drink (and homemade ice cream), and a performance by Storm Large.

We brought in our mobile espresso cart to provide guests and staff with some much needed fuel to bring the party well into the night. Via Tribunali also provided their rolling pizza oven and was slinging fresh pies as fast as we were slinging fresh espresso. All in all, it was a great time and Bruce estimates something in the neighborhood of $18,000 was raised for Mercy Corps. Happy 10th Blue Hour, and thank you!
