Governor Robert's 80th Birthday Party

Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts turned 80 with a special birthday party at Montgomery Park in December of 2016. It was packed with about 800 people. There were speeches, 2 other Governors of Oregon and 1 from Washington even. The Portland Trailblazers gifted her with a signed jersey. There was a photo station where you could have your photo taken in silly hats with a cardboard cut out of her. Most of all to Governor Roberts the whole event was a fundraiser for Compassion & Choices.

C&C is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving care and providing education to terminally ill patients and their families about end of life planning. A cause Roberts has been deeply passionate about for many years.

There were several items produced for the event, including an event program and button. Here is the full color program.

A novelty sized ticket was used to help promote the event

And of course the best item found at the event on the tables was a 3" birthday button
I was only able to get one button at the event. I didn't see a large number of them, but several other folks were wearing them. We will be posting items from Governor Roberts campaigns in future posts. Keep clicking back for more updates.
