About Our Auction

This year the Architecture Foundation honors OREGON TEACHERS!

Each year, teachers across Oregon help us deliver our Architects in Schools program to over 5,400 elementary school students. Together with volunteer design professionals, they are AFO’s first responders and we couldn’t bring the power of design to Oregon kids without them!

Our Honored Citizen event on October 28th will allow guests to “mingle” with friends and colleagues at a virtual pre-function including a cocktail demo and some casual interaction. Then stick around for a program that will include a celebration of Oregon teachers and an inspiring presentation from the founders of KairosPDX - an education nonprofit focused on transforming education through a model built on love and inclusion that elevates the voices of historically underserved children, their families and their communities.

Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit AFO's education programs including Architects in Schools, Hip Hop Architecture and the Hatfield Scholarship.
