The Black Tie & Tennis Shoes Benefit Dinner is unlike any other Black Tie. With a custom engineered ropes course built in the atrium of the Embassy Suites, this is the most exciting gala in town! Just as our students challenge themselves on Outward Bound courses in the wilderness, you will have the chance to test your limits on the zip line, mail-mans walk, rappel, rock wall and more! In addition to the ropes course, the evening will feature a silent and live auction, a formal dinner, and program. You will have a chance to meet Outward Bound instructors and students, and learn more about our programs that develop character, leadership, and an ethic of service.
Join us for this fun and inspiring evening on October 21st, 2017 - doors open at 5:30 pm! This event raises support for Northwest Outward Bound School's programs and scholarships in the wilderness and in the Portland and Seattle urban areas, allowing more students to have access to life changing experiential education.
