PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland soccer legends John Bain and Timber Jim are joining with Lompoc Brewing for a Portland Timbers viewing party and silent auction to raise funds for the West Side Timbers Premier Soccer Club U13 Copa; the youth soccer team recently won the Oregon State Cup and is now heading to New Mexico to participate in The US Youth Soccer Far West Regional League June 16 through 22. The fundraiser will take place on Saturday, May 24 from 3 to 6pm at Lompoc’s Fifth Quadrant patio and brewery, 3901 N Williams Ave.
A silent auction will begin at 3 pm and feature various soccer memorabilia, MLS items, Adidas merchandise and brewery packages. All monies raised at the silent auction, as well as the majority of beer sales during the event, will be donated directly to the team to help offset travel expenses.
The Portland Timbers vs New York Red Bulls game will be show from 4 to 6pm on a big screen on the patio (and in the brewery for those over 21). Just prior to kick off, Lompoc Brewing will present the Timbers Army 107ist with a donation from the 2013 season sales of Kick Axe Dry Hopped Pale Ale; Lompoc Brewing donates $5 from every keg sold. This year’s funds will be directed to Operation Pitch Invasion for a new field at Jefferson High School.
A Portland staple since 1996, Lompoc Brewing creates seven flavorful year-round beers, plus a ridiculous number of seasonals. You can find Lompoc in 22 oz bottles and on draft at locations around town, and at its five neighborhood pubs: Fifth Quadrant and Sidebar in North Portland, Lompoc Tavern in NW, and Hedge House and Oaks Bottom in SE.
