The Right Brain Initiative


Time warp with us to 1963 at MadFed—next Thursday, April 7th.

March 30th, 2011 by Right Brain Team



It must be stated: We’re huge, HUGE “Mad Men” fans at The Right Brain Initaitive. So when the Portland Advertising Federation approached us about being  a part of their “Mad Men”-themed fundraising event, we were there. We. Were. There!

And now we’re here. After months of preparations, MadFed is upon us next Thursday at 7pm. We invite you to join us! @Large, organizer of the recent Portlandia after-party, will be our host in NE Portland. Come ready to enjoy live music from retro-pop band Throwback Surburbia, an open bar with top-shelf classic cocktails, and what is bound to be an impressive sea of fedoras. We’ve also just secured photographer Robbie Augspurger, who will instantly take you back to the 1960s via his time warp photobooth (see his portraiture below and at Glamour & Headshots).

On the fundraising front, PAF has arranged an incredible line-up of auction items that will support their fundraising goals. Those who want to support Right Brain will have the opportunity, mid-way through the night, to raise their paddle to send a contribution directly to our work in public schools.

By including us in this event, PAF gets to support a non-profit endeavor that matches the values of their members. And we get to reach out to Portland’s creative business community—something we haven’t quite done before.

We hope you will help us celebrate this unique union between Right Brain and Portland’s real-life ad men and women. And if you can channel Peggy Olsen or Roger Sterling, or whomever your “Mad Men” doppelgänger might be, while you’re at it—all the better, right? We can’t wait!
