Like Convention Center big.
Like saving lives big.
Like biggest fundraising event of the year big.
That’s right — for the next day and a half, the blog might be extra-quiet, as we spend 36 hours at the Oregon Convention Center, prepping for the 12th annual Breakfast of Champions.
The schedule is jam-packed, as we have to set up some very cool re-enactments that will give guests a taste of what it’s like to attend a CPR class, visit a bloodmobile and stay in a Red Cross shelter. As you can imagine, creating that sort of thing takes a ton of props, all of which have to be made to look and feel as real as possible.
We’ve also got to set the tables with programs and table tents and annual reports and the like, all to make sure that guests (corporate and individual) know what our organization is all about.
When we’re not doing that, we’ll try to upload the hero videos to YouTube, so even if you can’t attend, you can get a “taste” of what the Breakfast is all about.
