At the March 9th Trail Blazers game, PDXWIT is partnering with Girls Inc. to sell raffle tickets for a 50/50 Raffle. Proceeds will go to Girls Inc.

Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. They equip girls aged 6-18 with the skills and confidence to access a bright and economically-independent future, through after school programs and experiences that help girls grow up to be healthy, educated, and independent.

Note, this is a volunteer event that requires 3-4 hours of standing, walking, and sales of raffle tickets to the general public. Talking points to assist with sales will be provided. Additionally, volunteers will be provided tickets to the Blazers game to watch the second half.

Event FAQ:

Q: Will there be gender neutral restrooms? A: Yes, Gender neutral bathrooms are located at A21 on the 100-Level, and C15 on the 300-Level.

Q: Is the space ADA accessible? A: Volunteers will be circulating the building for about 3 hours, and so it does require the ability to stand/walk for about that long. Should that be a barrier for some, we do have a booth on the 3rd level that will require 2 volunteers to be stationary. The building is ADA accessible, and there are also ADA tickets available for the game afterwards. If any volunteers require ADA accessible game tickets, please let us know in advance so we can reserve some!

Q: Where there be food and drink at this event? A: None will be provided. There are concessions with food for purchase available after the volunteer portion of this event has concluded (after 3rd quarter of the game begins).

Q: What is the parking situation? A: Parking near the Moda Center on game day is in high demand. Free street parking is limited and neighboring lots usually charge between $10 and $25, but you are welcome to pay to park in any of these spaces. DO NOT park in the Lloyd Center parking structure or any neighboring lots without permission, as you risk getting your vehicle ticketed or impounded.

Q: Is there secured bike parking? A:. Bike parking is available behind the box office, as well as various other stations around the Moda Center campus.

Q: Should I consider using public transportation? A: Yes! Several public transportation options including the bus, MAX, and Street Car can be taken to the Moda Center. The Rose Quarter Transit Center is located at the South end of the Moda Center and the Street Car stops are at the North end. Visit trimet.org if you need help planning your trip.

Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other.
