The Right Brain Initiative


MadFed, A Mad Success

April 20th, 2011 by Right Brain Team

Much like the television series Mad Men, our MadFed party and auction, put on in collaboration with the Portland Advertising Federation on April 7 was a huge hit. And phew! We think we’ve finally recovered from it all.

Guys and gals dolled up with their best ’60s attire raised nearly $8,000 to support the arts education of The Right Brain Initiative.  The evening was filled with laughter and excitement, toe-tapping music, and great conversation about the importance of arts in education.

Photographer Robbie Augspurger captured the outfits and essence of the night at a 1960s-style photobooth. The image above is just one example. *See the entire photobooth series here.* (Thanks to our friends at the Community Warehouse for loaning us the furniture!)
