You are invited to an elegant evening of dinner and dancing to celebrate human progress during the season when dark turns to light. Bring your family and celebrate in style!

We have reserved a private room at the Paragon Restaurant in the Pearl District of downtown Portland, tastefully decorated for the holidays, for our annual Dark-to-Light celebration. Pictured is the "Gallery Room" we've reserved. It has its own private entrance and showcases artwork from neighborhood art galleries.

Together we’ll share incredible food, partake in beer, wine and cocktails, and dance to a great selection of music played by DJ Micheal Pacheco. Children are welcome. The event runs until 10pm so just bring a blanket for them if they want to sleep while their parents continue to party!

Dress is semi-formal, please no casual wear. (What does semi-formal mean? Click HERE ( for an answer to this common question.)
