POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Celebrate the City! - November 14, 2013

Join Nick at the Moda Center tonight beginning at 6pm for Venture Portland’s second annual Celebrate the City event.

Learn more about Portland’s 50 unique neighborhood business districts, and bid on exclusive experiences around Portland
– including Alberta, the Pearl, Midway, and more.

Local businesses have donated some of their best wines for the event, too. Pick a bottle and take it home to unwrap and enjoy for only $10 per bottle. You can also buy raffle tickets online and win 52 or 12 "meal for two" gift certificates, and discover your new favorite restaurant! Winners will be announced at tonight’s event.

Tickets for Celebrate the City are $50, and are available online or at the door.

Small businesses drive our local economy.  Nick was proud to present an Ordinance at Council this week to increase the Business Owners Compensation Deduction to $100,000 – putting more money back in to our neighborhood small businesses.

November 30 marks "Small Business Saturday" - the day after Black Friday - where Americans show their support for our local small businesses. After learning more about our local business districts at Celebrate the City, we encourage you to "shop small" this holiday season!
